Headstone for Eunice Denison (unk-1809) in Cherry Hill Cemetery at Main Street and Christian Hill Road, north of the White River and east of Bethel, Windsor County, Vermont. This well-preserved black slate marker has me wondering if it’s a duplicate or has been cleaned recently. At 209 years and counting, this is one of the oldest headstones I’ve seen in Vermont.
The inscription (from Matthew 18:4) reads:
Whosoever shalt humble
himself as a little child
the same is greatest in
the kingdom of heaven.
