Featured Gravestone – Sarah Foster

Section:  Dutch Reformed

Material:  White marble

Misc.:  Stone has weathered to gray, but carving is very legible.  Minor edge wear with one large chip on right side.

Inscription:  Sarah Foster, Wife of James Hill, Born April 15, 1798, Died December 5, 1854

Though she is listed under her maiden name first on her headstone, Sarah Foster appears in the Common Council inventory under her husband’s name and the name Foster does not appear her listing at all.
