Where Stone is Unscarred

Where Stone is Unscarred
Wreath carved on the white marble headstone for Mary King Wheeler (1828-1876), wife of William A. Wheeler (1819-1887), a Republican US Congressman and vice president under President Rutherford B. Hayes, in Morningside Cemetery off Raymond Street and U.S. Route 11 in the town of Malone, Franklin County, New York. It’s incredibly detailed and must have taken a skilled hand to carve.
