Unsigned artwork

The bush alongside the grave of Obediah Taylor (d. 1839) is threatening to overtake the gravestone, a lovely example of the urn-and-willow motif. And are those stars, or maybe florets?

Memory of
who Died
March 2nd 1834:
In the 39 year
of his age.

It is unfortunate that so many gravestone carvers did not sign their work. Beautiful!

Blue Church Cemetery, Delaware County, Ohio
