Homer Carvers

The Boston carving shop of John Homer (1727 - 1803) employed his son William (1770 - 1822) and probably carvers William Bennett and Samuel White Jr according to researcher James Blachowicz in an article in the Association for Gravestone Studies Fall 2002 quarterly bulletin. The Homer shop supplied many gravestones to Cape Cod especially the Lower Cape.
