Featured Gravestone – Mary Kane

Section:  Dutch Reformed

Material:  White marble

Misc.:  This large, very simple stone is in very good condition with darkening of the stone, but very little in the way of chipping or cracking.

Inscription:  Mary Kane, Wife of W. Voorhees, Died Aug. 11, 1840 in her 69th year. 

This very plain stone is one of the very few signed stones in the Church Grounds with the name T.K. Kenny clearly carved on the lower portion.  There is at least one other monument by Kenny in the Albany Rural Cemetery, that of hotel proprietor Edward Delavan on the Middle Ridge.
