How strange that nobody said a word about this picture. I like it very much.
Me gusta mucho esta foto... Dice algo, no se que....
This Grave belongs to a witch of XVIII Century. See the symbol.
So called witches were never buried (if ever) in christian church ground.
Sybourgh and Notricks, thanks for stopping by my album.
Notricks, FYI a winged skull or face represents the flight up (ascension) to Heaven, according to every gravestone symbolism reference that I have ever seen. As Sybourgh said, it would be very unusual to have someone accused of being a witch buried in consecrated ground. And this is Trinity Church's graveyard, arguably the most important house of worship in British colonial NYC.
1743?? Ooooo died at young age 35?
Yes, perhaps died by indian or bear attack.
In 1743, thirthyfive was no young age. Especially not out there in the wilderness... ;)
Notricks I think you are an awful romantic. ;)
