Tombstone Tuesday: Heartbreak of Marble

Minister's Monument, Newman Cemetery, Rumford, RI, Sept. 2009
In the Newman Cemetery, I expected to find monuments and gravestones for the ministers of the Newman church. All four sides of this marble monument to the ministers of the church are very quickly becoming illegible. It is to the credit of the town that bronze plaques were affixed at the bottom of each side telling us what that side says. This was the side I could actually read so I decided to show it.

Another side lists all the early ministers. Without the plaque I would not have been able to read each name.
