Section: Garrstson Methodist Episcopal Church
Material: White marble
A small stone, probably truncated during its transfer. Darkened surface and some wear to inscription.
Inscription: Ruth Mead died 1843
This plain stone gives very little information on the deceased; her age and date of death are not provided. The surname Mead was fairly common in Albany at the time and this woman appears several times on newspaper lists of individuals with letters or other mail awaiting them at the Albany post office.
