Graham Monument, Crossroads Cemetery

Annie Graham’s daughter Ruth died in 1908 at only a few days old; Annie herself lingered for two and a half months, then died herself. The bereaved husband and father erected this monument with its statue of mother and baby. When he died eighteen years later, he was buried here, too, suggesting that he never remarried.
