Tombstone Tuesday - Rebecca J. Ross

Rebecca J. Ross

Rebecca Jane Ross was born March 30, 1861 to Henry Ross and Elizabeth (Cowan) Ross. She died March 12, 1862 and was buried at Mackey Cemetery, Piatt County, Illinois. I took this photo of the tombstone in June 2007.

The tombstone is difficult to read, but appears to say:
Dau of
H. & E. Ross
Mar 12. 1862
Aged 11m. 13d.
It's hard to read that day number, it might say 18 days, but my notes say born date is March 30. 11 months 18 days would be Mar 25, 1861. It's something to look into in the future.
