Another photo from my recent trip to Boston. This one taken in the Granary Burial Ground.
The tombstone reads:
HERE LIETH BV
PLATS AGED 47
FEBRVARY THE 7TH
Check out how “the” is written in the last line. Here is the FindAGrave record for Plats.
Came across these tombstones in Copp’s Hill Burying Ground in Boston’s North End and couldn’t resist:
I first happened upon this tombstone for William Beer:
Then, my alert pal Lisa noticed he was joined by his widow (maybe; see the middle tombstone in the background):
There’s an ‘s’ on the end of Ann’s last name, while William’s is Beer in the singular. Assuming the William married to Ann was the same whose tombstone is in the foreground, which spelling is correct?
