Amelia Huls Tombstone, Bethel Cemetery

Amelia Huls

An easily identified work of the Master of the Robinson Run Reliefs, whose trademarks are all present:

  • thistle decoration flanked by flowers
  • fan patterns in the corners
  • curled tail on the top of the lower-case g in age
  • “IN” in all capitals, “memory of” in all lower case, name in all upper case.

Interestingly, there is a Henry Huls buried in the Peters Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, whose tombstone is also by the Master of the Robinson Run Reliefs. We therefore know of at least three cemeteries in which this fine craftsman worked.

The inscription:
IN
memory of
AMELIA HULS
who departed this life
April 16th 1836 in the
49 year of her age
