Elizabeth Van Sickle

This is one reason why it is so hard reading tombstones in old cemeteries. This tombstone fell over many years ago and grass is growing over it. I have seen a few where only a six by six inch piece of the tombstone is showing.

This is the tombstone of Elizabeth Van Sickle, died Sept. 23, 1849 aged 64 years. She is buried in the Rapids Cemetery on Congress Avenue, Rochester, NY.
