From A Walk

So much history around here.

The headstones in the back were probably made in New England and shipped here. The carving, style, and stone, not to mention age suggest it.

Stones closer were locally made. Again different style, time, and rock.

If you look closely on the right stone you can see mention this person was from Sicily. Charleston was a wealthy port town with many immigrants. Half the port was French at one time.
