Arabell Brown Broken But Not Forgotten

Broken Tombstones Deserve Attention Also

Death of Young Arabell Brown

 On the trip from Delaware to New York there were many cemeteries along the way that caught my attention and this one is one of them. Some might say a neck breaker because you passed it before you knew it. Consequently, causing you to spin your head around to have a peek. Union Cemetery in located in Orange County, New York upon a hill in Wawayanda, slightly over grown in some areas it’s hard to see. This tombstone caught my attention not only because of it being broken but also the touching design around the name. I shared some of the other tombstones and families in past post; Phebe Sproat Quick and Canfield Family of Orange County, New York.

Review

**Note between the 1860 and 1870 Census it shows Mary A. Devis, the domestic is no longer living with the family. It also shows that the Brown family increased with the addition of two girls and one boy.

 

Due to the short life span of Arabell the information I’m sharing is quite small in comparison to many others that I’ve blogged about. But with that being said I strongly believe she was well loved and missed by many.
