Mary Reynolds, Died at 17 Months of Age

In Lot 11 of Block 2 at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery, is a flat stone which honors the memory of Mary Reynolds. Little Mary died in 1846 at the age of 17 months. To date, other members of Mary's family have not been identified.

Though some of the words have been covered by the ground, or worn away over the passage of many years,  it appears that this verse, from Matthew 19:14 has been  inscribed on Mary's stone:

"But Jesus said, Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
