Family ties

Epitaphs that mention a family tie and fall outside the usual Wife/Son/Daughter identification. For instance...

From Oakwood Cemetery, Syracuse:

One more uncommon "husband" identifier, complete with a possessive!

From Rome Cemetery, Rome, NY:

In memory of
Anna Elizabeth
Landon Adopted
daughter of Numa
& Betsy Leonard
who died Dec. 16,
1827, in the 6 year
of her age.

From Mt. Hope Cemetery, Rochester:

Amelia I.
Second wife of
John Robb
Jan. 9, 1883
Ae. 80 yrs.
