A classically dressed female figure raises her clenched fist to heaven over the grave of Orange Judd. It is more usual to see such a figure raising a finger that points heavenward suggesting that the dead has gone to heaven. But in this case it might be that the female figure represents the anger of the Judd family at losing 3 children soon after childbirth.
Judd served in the Army of the Potomac during the Civil War, was an agriculturist and scientist. His grave is located at Flushing Cemetery, Queens, N.Y.
