Sunday Styles: Gothic Tablet

One variation is the Gothic Tablet. Similar styling as that of the Gothic peaks popular in Gothic Architecture. The tablet style tombstone is generally set directly into the ground, although it may be found set atop a foundation. This type of marker usually date from the eighteenth century through the first decades of the nineteenth century.
