This Norwich, CT stone takes this idea to an unusual extreme — the names of "Simeon Warterman's Wife & Child" are not specified.
Here is Buried Mr Simeon
Wartermans Wife & Child
Who Died May 30th 1764 in
ye 21st year of her age,
Altho Death Desolved ye uni
on Betwen them nipt him in
the Topmost Bow, in the heigh[t]
of his Filisity, yet Comfort Re
mains in ye foloing Epitaph
Silent She lies Here in this Place
And so to Rest Till CHRIST Shall
Come To Raise her Dust & Crown
that Grace; Which in her
Life so Nobly Shone
The spelling of "Warterman" is also a nice little indicator of how 18th-c Connecticutians may have pronounced "water."
Mrs. Waterman and her baby aren't the only nameless subordinates commemorated on Connecticut gravestones — this 19th-century stone from Hanover, Connecticut is dedicated to "A Niece of Benjamin Franklin." Charming.
