A pristine example of a child being memorialized in stone can be found in the Forest Lawn Cemetery at Buffalo, New York.  The elaborate white-marble sculpture, preserved and encased in glass, portrays the twenty-one month old daughter of J. F. and Hannah Fargo, Tacie Hannah Fargo.  The little girl is positioned sitting on top of a tasseled blanket gripping a small bouquet of flowers.

J. F. Fargo was the brother of William G. Fargo, one of the founders of the Wells Fargo Company.

    Gorgeous art. The date of death is a little puzzling. December 34th?
