The most poignant tombstones are those for children. This tombstone for little Maud Gough is found in Lot 296, Space 4, Fernwood Cemetery, Henderson, Kentucky. Someone has placed artificial flowers in her hands. I have been told that this type of statute was often carved in the likeness of the child. This tombstone was photgraphed 2 June 2009.

Maud’s parents, Robert and Isabella Schopflin Gough, both died in 1932 and are buried at Fernwood Cemetery.
