Fragments: Harriet Elizabeth Welch

The gravestone of Harriet Elizabeth Welch (d. 1830) is weathered and broken into several large pieces, but its rising sun carving remains beautifully intact.

daughter [of]
F. C. & S. Welch,
died 16 July 1830
Aged 1 year 5 mo. &
20 days.

This is only one of many damaged stones in the Old Graveyard section of Oak Grove Cemetery, most likely the handiwork of vandals.
