Frederick, Maryland

The Holy Estate of Matrimony ~ No Rings:  Here's a leap-year wedding, and just one day before the 29th of February. Maybe she proposed to him. That was the old tradition: During leap years, the woman could propose to the man. She brought to the marriage an Irish heritage; he brought a German heritage. What else can you tell from this headstone? They were Phillies fanatics. They were immensely proud of their hometown (see the spires?). They were Christians. Want to know more? Just Koogle it. Mt. Olivet Cemetery. [2014]
