Agnes Dods died here shortly before her 10th birthday, she was buried in Potter's Field, on 26 August 1832, after the cemetery closed in 1855 most of the bodies were moved to the Toronto Necropolis or Mount Pleasant Cemetery. 

Her nephew Andrew Dods and his family including her great niece Agnes are buried at Mount Pleasant, perhaps there was a reason

I wanted to share this drawing of the hospital where Agnes Dods died with the community. Location: York,Upper Canada. Date: 1830.

Toronto, (Ontario, Canada) was renamed York in 1793. Its name was changed back to Toronto in 1834. The province of Ontario was known as Upper Canada from 1791 to 1841 (with Quebec as Lower Canada). From 1841 until Confederation in 1867, it was known as Canada West (with Quebec as Canada East).

The York General Hospital opened on King Street in 1829. Today, there is no hospital there. Instead, that area is the home of the Royal Alexandra Theatre, the Princess of Wales Theatre, and the TIFF Bell Lightbox (headquarters of the Toronto International Film Festival).
