Capt. Charles A. Foster (1863-1920) | Gifford.
With neither beginning nor end, the orb seems the perfect embodiment of the hope of resurrection. Captain Foster’s monument is one of several in the Provincetown necropolis — including those of Gwen Bloomingdale (1941-2001) and Francis “Frank” Perry Smith (1835-1918) — that feature a polished stone sphere. The captain’s parents both came from the Azores. He commanded the schooner Frank Foster, which was badly damaged during the 1898 Portland Gale. [Lot No. 205.]
