Tombstone Tuesday: Thankful's Gravestone

This past winter, I worked on a big project of the Hoxie/Clift family with another researcher. She, like me, enjoys a good gravestone adventure and has also inherited a large collection of photographs.

She shared this lovely photo of this woman named Thankful Alletta CLIFT who married Benjamin Holmes. She must have disliked being named after Thankful DENISON Clift, her ancestor for she did not use her first name.

I wasn't sure her name would be on her gravestone as Thankful so I was delighted to see that it was!

Do you think she resembled her ancestor?
