Headstone Description

not certain of meaning of "f. Risberg" below Sophie Granstedt's name. It was above her death date, so I'm assuming it to be closely connected to her. I have entered it as her Maiden name, since a Google search shows that Risberg is a Swedish surname.

He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
