Gravestone Symbolism

Note the Weeping Willow Tree symbol on Lucy Wilmarth gravestone... 1834

Weeping Willow Tree:

       "Although the form of the weeping willow

certainly suggests grief and sorrow, in many

religions it suggests immortality.  In Christianity it

is associated with the gospel of Christ because the

tree will flourish and remain whole no matter how

many branches are cut off."
