Tombstone Tuesday: Eve Miller

In memory of Eve, wife of Jacob Miller
born October 11th 1826
died January 8th 1849
aged 23 years 2 months & 27 days
also Philip
(I cannot read the rest)

Eve, and Philip, Miller are buried at Clearfield UM Cemetery in New Providence, Lancaster County, PA.

Philip is the son of Eve and Jacob. The stone implies that perhaps she died in childbirth or from complications as a result of child birth.

Philip died 10 days after his mother, on 18 January 1849, according to the Gerberich Collection available on Ancestry.com.
