Today I am feeling a bit guilty for cropping away the perfectly legible child’s marker that obscured the one I featured. To make amends, I offer the gravestone for William B.L. Darety (d. 1851).
It is a small, white marble tablet. Simple, with no epitaph and no decoration. Is there is a record of the location of young Darety’s grave? I hope so. I hope his gravestone is simply waiting its turn to be repaired and restored to its proper place.
WM. & M. DARETY,
July 13, 1851,
Aged 5 Y’s
