Gravestone of the Day: Hannah Harskell

Hannah Harskell, 1788, Sheldonville, MA
 In memory of
Mrs. Hannah, wi-
fe of Mr. Cum-
fort Harskell, who
died Octb. 1st

This stone — carved by the Sheldonville Geometric Carver — features the rare hyphenation of a single-syllable word. Anyone who is looking for Hannah in a genealogy should probably try searching for "Haskell," rather than "Harskell."
