But the marker at the grave of Elizabeth Hunter (d. 1870) was standing in the sun on the day I visited.
(Think the sun doesn’t make much of a difference in gravestone photography? Check out an un-sunny version of this stone on FindAGrave.com.)
H. R. HUNTER
Nov. 22, 1870:
In her 53d Y’r.
The gravestone, which has a rather unusual shape, features the carving of an open book. Often, gravestone books are carved with Bible verses. The pages of Elizabeth’s book read “Our Mother.”
