This is the gravestone of my great-great-great-great grandmother Helen (Ellen) McCabe. The stone is in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Niagara Falls, New York. She shares the stone with her husband, Thomas, and her son, Owen.
I was lucky to be at the cemetery on a day that favored reading her inscription, as the sandstone marker is quickly becoming illegible. Here’s what it says:
Native of Co. Sligo
Died June 27, 1884
Aged 76 Years”
