Show topic: Colonial headstone engraver, Obadiah Wheeler

January 12, 2021 show: On this inaugural Tombstone Tuesday episode, I will interview Teal Gray about her ancestor: Obadiah Wheeler.

Obediah Wheeler is a renowned headstone carver who quite literally made his mark upon the world during Colonial times in New England. His unique tombstone style often features charming soul effigies, a.k.a. smiling heads with wings.
