Featured Gravestone – Gennet Palmer


Section:  First Presbyterian

Material:  White marble

Misc.:  Typical darkening of exposed surfaces to gray, top edge embedded and partially broken, sides and bottom also embedded in the earth.  Inscription is generally legible.

Inscription:  In memory of Gennet: the amiable consort of Joseph Palmer who died August 4th, 1808, in the 49th Year

At present, little information is available about either Gennet or Joseph Palmer, but the Common Council lists her name as Janet.
