Does "Consort of" mean wife?

Yes. If a stone says "consort of " it means that the woman was married and her husband is still alive. " Relict of " means that her husband has already died. I have not seen a tombstone with " relict of " yet so if anyone has a picture of one, please post it or email it to me - I'd love to see it.

Hello Debbie,

Congratulations on continuing your
valuable research.

Please let me know if you ever come
across the grave of my gg grandmother
Catherine Ewart Spindler, the first
wife of George Spindler (1801-1881) of East Bethlehem, Pa. She died before 1834.

Warm regards,
Martha Spindler Brown
