Centenarian Obelisk

 150 years ago, Jacob G. Miller, soldier of 1812, died on Sept. 2 in the 100th year of his age. Good for him!

This detail is near the base of a fairly detailed obelisk that sports an urn set in a little portico space, an anchor, some nice zig-zags, and the drapery around the mid-section has a delicate, almost lacy profile compared to the usual heavy-looking drapery we see.

This marker also commemorates:

Mary Johnson,
Wife of Jacob G. Miller,
Died April 30, 1840,
Aged 80 years.

(And coincidentally, I'm drafting this post on April 30, 2022 - the 182nd anniversary of her death day.)
