Widow at Husband’s Grave

Circa 1914: Anna Zeller Gaul (1848-1932) visiting the grave of her husband, George Gaul (1846-1884) at Saint John’s Hains Cemetery in Wernersville, Pennsylvania. I’m unable to identify the object inside of the glass case, possibly a wreath or an article of clothing. George was a farmer who died at the age of 38… Anna, who was 36 at the time of his death never remarried. View the complete Thanatos Archive Collection! Memberships available here.
