Wednesday’s child: Solomon F. Boston

The small obelisk at the grave of Solomon F. Boston (d. 1862) is in a shady corner of Center Village Cemetery. Shady when the leaves are on the tress, that is.

The marker features the carving of a broken rosebud, symbol for a life that ended before it bloomed.

Solomon’s parents are probably Solomon and Margaret Boston, who appear with a 3-year-old Solomon in the 1860 Federal Census for Harlem Township, Delaware County, Ohio.
