I came across this broken stone on the North Ridge while looking for several veterans of the 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry known to be buried in the nearby G.A.R. plot.  The elegant script used for the name "Francesca" caught my attention and I'd love to know what the rest of the stone looked like originally.  The partial inscription is in Italian and this is likely the Francesco La Canfora listed in burial records for 1931.
