Upright Stones – Augusta Mary Jackson

Just a few feet from the upright headstone of John Craig, this stained and cracked marker was relocated from the Episcopal section of the State Street Burying Grounds where it marked the original resting place of an English girl who died before her first birthday.

Sacred to the Memory of Augusta Mary, the infant daughter of Captain R.H.S. Iackson of the British Army and Elizabeth, his wife, who was born in England at Staindrop Hall in the County of Durham on the 29th of July 1850 and who died at Albany whilst on her road to Canada on the 18th of July 1851.

The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away, bless be the name of the Lord.

  1. As of 2008 Staindrop Hall was still standing, though in derelict condition and threatened by development: http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php/33612-Staindrop-Hall-Oct-2008
