Material: White marble
Large white stone with a distinctive shape. Carved drapery frames the upper part of the tablet with a cover urn above it. Stone is very darkened and inscription is heavily eroded, though the text was copied on the burial index card.
Inscription: In memory of Charity, wife of Bristol Fox, who departed this life September 1, 1825, aged 29 years, 10 months, and 12 days. Also, Catherine Louisa Fox, aged 4 months and 12 days, also Edward Henry, aged 23 days.
*While the stone is currently located in the United Presbyterian section of the Church Grounds, the Common Council inventory lists it as originally erected in the Methodist Episcopal section of the State Street Burying Grounds.
Charity’s maiden name was Devoe and it is possible she was related to William Devoe who is also buried in the Church Grounds. The 1825 city directory lists her husband as a carpenter at 654 South Market Street. The dates of death for the children are not given and it is not known if either died at or around the same time as Charity.
