First grave is of a Protestant husband and his Catholic wife who were not allowed to bury together in the 19th century, but they remained united by hands – reaching each other, even though a wall parted them. Second is the body of David Alleno that was buried in The Recoleta Cemetery, famous for being a burial ground of famous personalities. Being the caretaker of that burial ground for twenty-nine years, he deeply hoped to bury himself there too for which he constructed his own tomb that showed his lifestyle carved out.
Fourth was Matthew Stanford Robinson, courageous and full of strength. Not much can be said about this monumental gravestone and the person resting under, apart from the fact that he found freedom from the wheel chair only after death, and should be treated with respect.
Fifth is Jonathan Reed’s grave next to his wife, who left him early. Jonathan loved her so dearly that he chose to be buried right next to her. He was totally devoted to be with her even after death. Sixth was Jack Crowell, owner of the National Clothespin Company of Montpelier. He got buried in Middlesex, VT W. The clothespin gravestone marked the grave of the man who always wanted a giant clothespin for kids who could waver on it. Summary: To invoke the memory of a person, erecting Tombs play a vital role, showing respect for the body. It is like a gift that accompanies the person’s deceased life. Its value lies in its ornamentation and richness of decoration as well, with crudely carved inscriptions and stories depicting events that will remain preserved for years to come.]]>
