Wednesday's Child: Tombstones of Vernon and Daisey Clift

Wednesday’s Child is one of the daily blogging prompts at Geneabloggers that features gravestones of children.

I have written previously about Vernon and Daisey Clift who died within days of each other following a house fire.  I recently found their tombstones on Findagrave.com.  They are buried in the EUB Church Cemetery, also known as Coverstone, in Shenandoah, Virginia.  Their mother Sallie Clift is there too.  Like so many children’s tombstones, theirs are both adorned with a lamb.
