Tombstone Tuesday -- Sibel (Kerby) White (1764-1848) in Acotes Hill Cemetery, Glocester, R.I.

I have collected a number of gravestone photographs from my own camera and from Find A Grave memorials over many years, and thought I would share them one at a time for Tombstone Tuesday.

Here is the gravestone of my 4th great-grandmother, Sibel (Kerby) White (1764-1848) in Acotes Hill Cemetery in Glocester, Rhode Island:

The inscription says:

Sibel Kerby
Wife of
Humphrey White
