Section: African Methodist Episcopal
Material: Brown sandstone
Misc.: Well-carved with deep, clear lettering. Very little damage beyond wear to edges and minor lichen spots.
Inscription: In Memory of Mary McCany; Who departed this life, June 7th, 1811, Aged 32 years, 11 months, And 7 days. Teach me to do thy holy will, And lead me to thy holy hill, Let the good spirit of thy love, lead me to thy courts above.
This is one of the oldest stones in the A.M.E. lot and is in very fine condition. There is, once again, little biographical data for this woman. This stone appears in the Common Council list as McCanny.
