Section: African Methodist Episcopal
Material: White marble
Misc.: Very simple, but nicely sized stone in very good condition with just one large chip to the base.
Inscription: Thomas Jefferson died May 22, 1852, aged 29 Years. “Therefore, be ye also ready for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of Man cometh.”
As with many stones in this section, there is very little historical and biographical information available about the deceased. In this case, the 1850 census record shows a probable match; a Thomas Jeferson who was born in Maryland. He appears as a porter in Albany’s 5th Ward at the address of Bernerd Pullet, a French-born dancing master.
