Tombstone Tuesday - The Brace Tree

This was an interesting gravestone in Short Tract Cemetery located in Granger, Allegany, New York. It is a tree stump with what looks like a Calla Lily at the base. According to GraveAddiction.com, it represents beauty. I did not see any markings on the actual tree, however, a transcription was done for this cemetery at the Painted Hills Genealogy Society's website and there is only one Brace listed.
