Featured Gravestone – Rebecca Swart

Section:  First Presbyterian

Material:  White marble

Misc.:  This stone has weathered to gray and broken off at the lower half.  There was an additional line of text below the break.  Top portion of the stone features a very simple open book (presumably a Bible) within a saw-tooth half circle.  There does not appear to have been any inscription or further decoration on the pages of the book.  The broken stone shown below it in the photo is from a separate monument about which I have no addition information at this time.

Inscription:  In Memory of Rebecca Swart, Wife of Cornelius Swart, Jun., who died Jan. 21, AD 1825.

According to the listing in the Common Council’s inventory, there was an additional line of next reading 35 y. 3 mos.
