Wednesday’s child: Mary E. Gill

The small marker in Fletcher Chapel Cemetery for Mary E. Gill (d. 1844) bears an image of a tree—a stylized willow? Perhaps, but certainly not as weepy as most.

Mary E.
daughter of
Ambrose &
Susanna G[ill]
died Jan 9, 1844
aged 9 days.

Ambrose Gill (d. 1849) is buried nearby, as is his first wife, Sarah Kitner (d. 1841). “Susanna” is most likely Susan Kalb, who married Ambrose Gill in 1842.
