Death and Burial

Mary Rebecca died on 24 February 1886 in New York (Manhattan), and was buried in Green-Wood Cemetery two days later.[1] It is possible that her remains were later moved to Saint James Episcopal Churchyard in Hyde Park, New York, as that is the location of her tombstone. See further discussion regarding her burial site on her FindaGrave profile.
