The marker at the grave of Margaret Borden (d. 1838) is simply carved. It appears that someone, most likely not a master stone carver, carved the inscription on a gravestone “blank.”

No willows, urns, or hands. No decorative border.

  1. It may be simply done, but it is still readable. That says ALOT in my mind. Thank you for sharing.
