I know it may seem like an unusual choice, but I was really taken with the unique carving of this beautiful headstone. The inscription reads: "The Grave of/ELISABETH MOSS/who died on the 2nd of/December A.D. 1834/aged 70 years." There are a handful of other headstones in this cemetery carved by the same hand--I can't help but wonder what influenced his distinctive style. The headstone is located in Robinson Run Cemetery in South Fayette Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, which is about 10 minutes from where I grew up (it's also where my grandmother was buried this Wednesday).
