Grave Markers: Adam and Eve
Recently at work we got a batch of periodicals called “Markers”, by the Association for Graveyard Studies. They were all about grave markers, the making of gravestones, and cemetery history. I obtained enough photos from these books that I plan on making a few postings of them.
One section was exclusively stones with Adam and Eve imagery on them. Click any image to enlarge it.
Halifax, Nova Scotia, 1775/1796, Mary and Freke Bulkeley
St. Quivox, Ayrshire, 1766-84, James McCalla
Logierait, Perthshire, 1784, Margaret Connacher (Alien and Eve I’d say, heh heh)
Logiealmond, Perthshire, 1764, James Nockel
Methven, Perthshire, 1748, children of John Watt. This is one of my favorites. Check out that masonic imagery!
If you have an interest in cemeteries and old gravestones, I would strongly recommend looking at the Markers publication. All of the issues we scanned are available for free on the Internet Archive, here: http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=creator%3A%22Association%20for%20Gravestone%20Studies%22
