Cross & Crown / Brady, Waterbury

Full image:



After some internet searches, I found that the cross and crown is a Christian symbol of the suffering savior (Jesus).  The Bible calls Christians into the suffering of Christ, as found in James 1:12:

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.




In Loving Memory of Capt. Wm. N. Brady U.S.N., 1809-1887; Cornelia Waterbury Brady, 1817-1900.
