Revenants

Headstone for Grace Bedford (unk-1822) in Cherry Hill Cemetery at Main Street and Christian Hill Road, north of the White River and east of Bethel, Windsor County, Vermont. Look at how much better this slate stone has withstood the test of time compared to the limestone marker right next to it. Both stones have similar iconography (a vase with willow branches), but you can hardly make out the one on the right. I’m betting Grace’s stone was cleaned recently, but still, remarkably less weathering.
