The Lost Child

Headstone for a child named Mary Chadwick (1882-1882), daughter of S.W. Chadwick, in Cherry Hill Cemetery at Main Street and Christian Hill Road, north of the White River and east of Bethel, Windsor County, Vermont. I love the size and simplicity of this stone. She was only five months and 12 days old when she died (dates are on the reverse side).

The inscription (from Matthew 19:14) reads:

Suffer little children to come unto me
