Kilroy was(n't) here

 These are rather your classic 18th century memento mori-style headstones, but I love the faces! They're much simpler and more cartoony than I usually see - hence my allusion to Kilroy.

In Memory of Mr. Samuel Lyman: who Died Febr. ye 4th 1754 in ye 34th Year of his Age.
As You are now
So once were we
As we are now,
So You must be.

In Memory of Elifabeth Lyman ye wife of Mr. Samll. Lyman who Died Febr. ye 28th 1751 in ye 48th Year of her Age.

Bonus: where Kilroy was:

From Woodlawn Cemetery, Syracuse, NY
