Description: 

Next to the Caledonia Chapel is the small "fenced square of earth" that is the local "graveyard" (154). The grave that is repeatedly violated in the novel is unmarked, but the others are indicated by "mottoless" and "shingle-thin slabs of cheap grey granite" standing "without symmetry or order" and "canted always slightly" (154). Next to Vinson Gowrie's grave, where no one rests for long, is his mother's grave, where the tombstone reads "AMANDA WORKITT, wife of N.B. Forrest Gowrie, 1878 birth, 1926 death" (99).
