Featured Gravestone – Alida Lansing Peck

Section:  Dutch Reformed

Material:  White marble

Misc.:  Marble is discolored and stone is broken horizontally just below the second line of the inscription.  The upper right corner is also broken, but present.

Inscription:  Alida D. Lansing, Wife of —- —-, March 1, 1842 Aged 21 Years

This stone is in poor condition; not only is it broken in two places, but it shows tracks where a mower has passed over it.  This is not uncommon among these stones and, no doubt, contributes to the damage.  Alida is listed in the Common Council inventory as the wife of Allen F. Peck and her date of death is March 1.  Several years after her death, her husband appears in the city directory as a moulder residing at 89 Eagle Street.
