    So, regarding the skull on Jeremiah’s grave.
    This is actually a very nice touch on the part of the properties team.
    This was a actually a very popular design on graves in olden days, (a few of my ancestors from Maine in those days had the same pattern.) and was meant to serve as a symbolic reminder of mortality to those who visit the grave. Wings along side it were a symbol of ascension for the spirit of the deceased.

    There are quite a few such symbols in graveyards. Anchors for Mariners (surprising not to see any in Collinsport!), upside down anchors for hope (yeah, a lot less to be expected of that in Collinwood!) Urns and drapery for grief, half finished columns for lives cut short, hearts for immortality, and Stars for protection from evil (popular in witch craze days).

    Kind of interesting to see what symbols crop up on the character’s stones.
