A- pointed out to me that, at least in this area, female epitaphs are generally about being a loving something; a wife, a mother, a grandmother, all of which define the female in terms of other people.

The males will often have their military rank, a job or some other important action they participated in.

Women are defined as who they were while men are defined by what they did.

So I’m not sure what to think about these two. They are husband and wife and these graves are side by side.
