The gravestone below is an example of Stone 14 from the Plympton County cemetery, as depicted in Figure 3 of the study by James Deetz and Edwin Dethlefsen entitled Death's Head, Cherub, Urn and Willow.
This stone shows the full extent of this third, distinct style. Again, note the more conventional wings and facial elements more similar to the stylistic precursors. The heart-shaped mouth has been replaced in this stone with a simplified mouth form. This style, illustrated by Stones 11 through 14, is found on graves in cemeteries located to the west of the cemeteries in which the other gravestone style trends are found.
