Tombstone Tuesday - Roswell and Eunice Tharp

Stones like this one always both intrigue and sadden me.  It is the stone of two young siblings, Roswell and Eunice Thorpe (aka Thorp or Tharp), and is located in the Old Center Cemetery of North Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut.  According to Families of Ancient New Haven by Donald Lines Jacobus, they were the children of Asa Thorpe and Lydia Pardee.  Based on the information in that series, Asa Thorpe I believe was a first cousin to my 5th great-grandmother, Mabel (Thorpe) Alling.
