Rock Creek Cemetery, Washington DC – 09 JUL 2011

As the sign says, this cemetery belongs to St Paul’s Church and was established in 1719.
The church began as a mission in 1712 and is the only surviving colonial church in the DC area.
There are several notable residents including a signer of the US Constitution.

No 'Beloved wife of...' here; she who dies last gets the last word:
