A Duo in Trinity

Here's a few shots I took of Trinity Cemetery last week when the snow was fresh. The first is a Revolutionary War veteran's grave, covered in smooth snow. Using the finder at the Trinity Church website, I believe this may be the grave of Francis Lewis, a signer of the Declaration of Independence but probably best known today as the namesake of a major road in eastern Queens.
The second is an old old old worn down tombstone surrounded by chunks of snow. They, like many of the stones at Trinity, are weathered beyond all recognition. These are likely from the 18th century.
By tomorrow the snow will be gone but the stones will remain to see another day.
