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?
