Inscription: In memory of Maria Scott Daughter of Uri and Abiah Scott Who departed this life Feb. 2nd, 1827 Aged 25 years 1 month & 10 days. How peaceful is the closing scene When virtue yields its breath How sweetly beams the smile serene Upon the cheek of death. The Christian’s hope no fear can blight No pain her peace destroy. She views beyond the realms of light A pure & boundless joy.
This stone a single rose framed by tassels and drapery instead of the more common urn or willow. About two years before Maria’s death, a notice appeared in the Albany Argus offering for sale a farm previously occupied by Uri Scott in Greenbush, Rensselaer County.
