I discovered this old headstone today at a cemetery not too far from where we live but it began pouring down rain before I could venture any further and ran to the car before the camera got wet.

The inscription read as follows:

Wife of Elisha D. Thompson
Died Feb. 22,1888
Aged 84 years.

God splashed a teardrop
Upon Abigail's headstone....
From His heavenly throne
While the falling rains
Washed o'er rusty stains...
┬ęPoetry by me AJP
