Tombstone Tuesday - Jane Fowlie

This is the tombstone of my 2nd great grand aunt Jane Fowlie located at Parkers Grove Cemetery, Canton township, Benton County, Iowa. Jane was the sister of my 2nd great grandfather Alexander Brown Fowlie.

According to my notes, she was born in Scotland. According to the 1880, 1885 and 1900 Census records, she was living with her brother James in Benton County, Iowa. She is buried next to her mother Margaret and brother James. According to the 1900 US census, she immigrated to the United States in 1866 and is listed as never having children.

The tombstone reads:
In Memory of
Jane Fowlie
1832 - 1906
