Sharing from Scott Andersen this photograph of a lovely carved early Ohio gravestone at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Ohio. It is for Mary Davis, consort of James Davis.
The word “consort” on a women’s tombstone usually indicates that she predeceased her husband. Scott stated that this stone was carved by George Meech of Chillicothe, Ohio (in Ross County).
It is always a bonus to see the carver's name inscribed on a gravestone. This is particularly true for one as intricately created as this one is which still stands in almost perfect condition after 182 years.
