Downs Street Cemetery, Bristol, Connecticut

Downs Street Cemetery is loaded with exceptional tombstone iconography.  Many tombs are occupied by Revolutionary Patriots, including Bristol Watchmakers and Abigail Deming (1771), great great great grandmother of Winston Churchill.

Wings symbolize soul soaring to Heaven
Forefinger pointing up means soul has gone to heaven
Weeping Willow symbol for Mourning
Poppy is symbol of eternal sleep
Wings symbolize soul soaring to Heaven.  Circle is symbol of eternity.
