Tombstone Tuesday - Children's Heart



This tombstone honors two young children who died in the 1870's. Agnes and Thomas are probably brother and sister, but their last name is unknown. They are buried in the oldest section of Oakwood Cemetery in Braidwood, Will County, Illinois.

Here are links to the transcription record and a photo of the stone taken several years ago. My photo is only a couple of months old. While it is sad to see the stone sink and become less visible, I appreciated the heart shape it has become.

Rest in peace, Agnes and Thomas.

  1. I agree. Sad to see it sinking, but I think the shape that it has taken is very special.
