Not to be missed is this lovely gravestone from Elm Grove Cemetery in Mystic, CT.

Not any member of my family, this eye-catching gravestone features the anchor and an upraised hand holding a telescope, I think. I really wonder who he was....

His wife outlived him by so long, I guess the family did not opt for the "Civil War" era lettering and took advantage of the large space at the bottom for her name, dates and relationship.
