A cross with a crown sitting on top of it tops the large gray granite Taylor Family monument in the Rock Creek Churchyard Cemetery at Washington, D. C. The crown is a symbol of glory and victory over death.  The reward awaits in Heaven where the victor will receive a crown of victory. The cross represents the suffering of Jesus.
