One of my co-workers knows what a nut I am for cemetery art.

So she and her husband took photos for me when they visited Colonial Park Cemetery in Savanannah GA on a vacation trip last year.

This one interested me because of the inscription, and the stone carver's name at the bottom.

The stone marks the grave of Albert Anthony Henry, only child of Albert C and Harriet A Henry, who died when he was 2 years and 7 months old.

The inscription below reads:
Rest, sweet child, in gentle slumber
Till the resurrection morn,
Then arise to join the numbers
Who its triumph shall adorn

Though thy presence was endearing
Though thy absence we deplore
At the Saviour's bright appearing
We shall meet to part no more.

D A Mumford Providence RI

Now, I wonder if the stone carver, D A Mumford was related to William Mumford, a noted Cape Cod stone carver in the late 17th and early 18th centuries.
