Janet Greene enlarged on a work by Thomas C. Mann that records samplings of epitaphs from New England gravestones from a variety of periods from Colonial times to the present. I found the older stones to be the most interesting. They frequently recorded causes of death such as a 7 month old child who had been scalded to death from a tea pot. One very tragic stone from the 19th century recorded the tragic deaths of a family where the man killed the entire family and then himself. Epitaphs interest me, and many of these did not disappoint.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0911469109, Paperback)

In earlier times, people felt the need to leave a permanent record of who they were and what they stood for. Nowadays people tend to keep quiet about those things, at least in their final resting place. But many have found a new fascination in wandering about an old graveyard. They are often touched and moved by what they read there. Those people of former generations have much to say to us, although with great economy of words because each letter had to be chiseled in stone with hand tools.
