Little children

From Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta:

A child's headstone, of a little child/cherub curled up in a seashell:

Epitaph: Fell asleep Aug't 10th 1869. Aged 9 mon's & 1 day.

From Mt. Hope Cemetery, Rochester:

A small obelisk structure for "Our Willie," who is "Over in the summer land." the epitaph notes. The top is a neat little statue/column affair, but to me the most noteworthy part of this headstone is that chubby, creepy little hand.
