Missouri-consort

I had to go back to Missouri recently. So while I was there I found many of my families old cemeteries. I was walking and looking at the ancient headstones and taking pics of them, when I came across one I had never seen before.
It said....Rebecca-Consort of James Hill. Born 1839 died 1868.
CONSORT? I never knew that was something that was put on a headstone. Not sure if it was a compliment or what....Interesting none the less.
