Wednesday’s child: Philomelia Simpson

Long after my visit to Deer Creek Township Cemetery this spring, I realized that Philomelia Simpson (d. 1839) not only has her own tablet gravestone, but also is named on a larger, more modern monument that she shares with her parents.

A larger, more modern memorial that I did not photograph.


memory of
Philomelia Simpson
daughter of Abraham
& Elizabeth Simpson
died Oct 7th 1839
aged 9 years 2 mo
& 26 days

Even though I did not photograph the other monument that bears Philomelia’s name, you can see it on

By the way, Deer Creek Township Cemetery has a couple of aliases, including Upper Gwynne Farm Cemetery and Lafayette Cemetery.
