Wednesday’s child: Newton F. Howison

My stop at Brown Cemetery was a quick one. The cemetery is small, and the only parking was at the side of the road—barely. There was not a lot of traffic on the country road, but what there was was moving fast.

I took a few photos and was back on the road in minutes. One photo I took was the small, marble gravestone of a baby: Newton F. Howison (d. 1864).



NEWTON F.
SON OF C.O. & M
HOWISON,
Deid [sic] Sep. 15, 1864
Aged 2 ms. 15 ds.

Little Newton’s parents may be Charles O. and Mary Howison, who are buried not far from here in Prospect Cemetery. They both lived long lives.
