New England Grave marker text circa 18th century


Obviously not fonts, but I'd love to find something similar to the lettering on these grave markers in the Salem, MA. Cemetery. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!


Check this out for letter carving:

Good variety of English vernacular Roman lettering. In particular I love the _G_ in the first image, which looks like it's sucking a lemon!
Some of these memorial lettering designs were turned into full alphabets. For example check out the book by Day called _Alphabets_ from circa 1900. As for digital versions, there are no exact matches but you might be interested in some of the fonts by Greater Albion Typefounders

The link I posted above is to a nice digitized free face that is based on letter carving.

Thanks all! Some really good choices there.
