TOMBSTONE OF CAPT. ERASTUS B. SALISBURY - Salisbury Cove Cemetery, Salisbury Cove Cemetery, Mount Desert Island, ME

A tombstone of a Captain who lived 89 years.  I like very much the floral pattern on the upper portion of the stone as well as the general shape of the tombstone.  The base looks to be a different material than the tombstone.  Perhaps the tombstone one stood by itself and later was "installed" into the concrete base.    Notice also that the name is in raised letters and the title "Capt." and the dates are inscribed.
