Asa FISH (top of gravestone)

Originally uploaded by midgefrazel
This is the top of the gravestone of the patriarch, the Honorable Asa FISH, who is buried with his descendants in this section of the Elm Grove Cemetery in Mystic, CT.

Mny of the gravestone purchased in this era have this curved top with the person's name carved in block letters. I think it is a good thing too since the face of this gravestone is very hard to read. Without the sources of the Fish and Chesebrough genealogies at my fingertips I would not be sure what this reads.
