Tombstone Tuesday - Mary Jessie Patterson HANLEY

(This photo was in a relatives papers)

Mary Jessie Patterson HANLEY is my great-great grandmother. She was born 24 May 1870 in Hamilton, Wentworth, Ontario, Canada.  Her mother was Elizabeth and her father is unknown.

On 17 May 1886 at the age of 16 she married Henry Harry HANLEY in Hamilton.  Over the next 16 years she gave birth to 13 children.  "Jessie" tragically died on 23 Oct 1902 at the age of 32 in Alexandria, Madison, Indiana.  Henry took her body back to Canada and she is buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Burlington, Canada.

Jessie's Find a Grave memorial can be found here.

*Please refrain from chalking tombstones.  It does not wash away with the next rain and can cause irreparable damage to the stone.
