Quite literally for this lady. I saw this image whilst looking through a digital catalog of old photographs for the County in which I live. I shared one earlier and here I am sharing another one. This one caught my eye because there are words etched into the steps. "Emma Moore Memorial" it reads. "Pupil 1866-1868" ."Erected by her husband" and then "James Garrity" , "Corsicana Texas". These are on the campus of Salem Academy and College. There is another set of engraved steps I've come across as well. I've never noticed them until recently. They lead up to a building that is now a business / convention type center but was a high school. The engraving simply says "Class of 19__" I forget which year. I think it might have been the founding year of the school.

My grandmother's final surname was Moore. Given to her by her late (and last) husband. That instantly came to my mind when I saw it. I bet it'd take some digging. The memorial steps are here in North Carolina, but the inscription suggest they migrated to Texas.
