Gravestones

Gravestone of Mary (Stebbing) Gaylord, Palisado Cemetery, Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut (Photo credit: Jeffrey Alan Mills, findagrave.com - the photographer noted that the stone was in deep shade and that a mirror was needed to make the inscription legible, so the lighting and coloring is due to the reflection of the mirror):
Gravestone of Mary (Stebbing) Gaylord
Note that this stone may have been placed 40 or 50 years after Mary's death (see TAG 60:213-4).
