Mary L. Mcneil

Mary L. McNeil died in 1852, and she was buried in Block 25 of Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. Though her tombstone is now partially underground, I was able to learn a bit about her from her Oakland Cemetery Interment Card. The card states that Mary L. McNeil died on November 19, 1852; however, the C on her tombstone may read as Dec. 19, 1852. Mary was aged 24 years, 9 months, and 28 days at the time of her death. The inscription at the bottom of her grave marker has the inscription:

Sleeps in Jesus

The 1850 U.S. Census lists Mary L. McNeil as age 22, born in New York, and residing in the household of Albertus McNeil in Portland Township, Erie County, Ohio. Rest in peace, Mary.
