Tombstone Tuesday: Flora, 94 years old

Tombstone Tuesday: Flora

Flora a photo by Midge Frazel, 5 Oct 2012

Sometimes, an amazing gravestone just catches my eye as I am walking through a cemetery. At the time, I took this photo, I did not try to look it up in the Vital Records to 1850 of Massachusetts.

Since this area is now Wayland and was once Sudbury, I decided to look in the vital records of Wayland first. I immediately went to the last page where many unidentified deaths are recorded and found her. That was easy, I thought. So I went back to the main page and searched and found her listed as Flora "Negroes".

Such a lovely stone. Flora deserves to be remembered for her long life, prior to 1850. Rest in Peace.
