101 Ways, Part 109: Killed by Falling from Cliffs

For a brief intro to the "101 Ways to Say 'Died'" series, click here.

I lied a little bit when I said I didn't do any gravestoning in Bar Harbor. Just a little.

There are an awful lot of epitaphs that say "Killed by X." I didn't want to include them all in 101 Ways because the verb was always the same, but I might as well put them up now. This one from Bar Harbor, Maine is very sad:

Lucreatia K.
dau. of
Rev. Wm. S. & Priscilla

Cliffs on Newport, Mt. Eden, Me.
Aug. 3. 1853.
AE 12 yrs.
Dead, but not forgotten.

Thanks for the link! I was a little afraid to click it, for fear it was going to be video of someone falling to her death.
