Wednesday’s child: Dearth sons

Candler Cemetery is a small country cemetery outside the town of Ada, Ohio. There I found the grave marker for the infant sons of T. and R.A. Dearth—perhaps twins who died at birth or soon after.

The marker is topped by not one, but two lambs. The lambs appear to sleep peacefully, as if in each other’s embrace.

Buried nearby are Thomas Dearth (b. 1849, d. 1927) and Rachel Ann (Candler) Dearth (b.1855, d. 1886), who surely are the babies’ parents.
