Husband and Wife

The grave on the left has what I think are wheat sheaves. Wheat sheaves apparently symbolize a life of plenty given by God.

"Lydia G. Stearns BORN July 29, 1780 DIED May 2 1862. Erected by daughter (illegible) Gregg."
"James Stearns BORN August 30 1774. DIED Jan 14 1854. Erected by his daughter, (illegible) Gregg."

Lovely wreath. Wreath is a Christian symbol meaning victory of achievement.
