This beautiful old monument was found on our most recent visit to Philadelphia in September. It belongs to Tench Francis who was born in 1730 and died 1 May 1800. He is buried in Christ Church Burial Ground about a block away from the Church.
This is a beautiful old graveyard and has the remains of Benjamin Franklin interred in it. I paid to enter this graveyard and photographed as many as I could. I did not buy the map to the graveyard, however, as I felt that should have been included in the admission charge. I won’t digress since I did a blog on Philly when we got home from our day trip and you can read my feelings on it on that on my blog Let Free dom Ring, Our Day in Philly.
This is a beautiful, substantial headstone and the reason it is
