Tombstone Tuesday - Annie Constance Pelley (1860 - 1862)

I have run out of my own family's tombstones (for now), so I will be posting those that I have taken photos of last summer.

Sacred
To the memory of
Annie Constance Pelly
Who died 2 May 1862
Aged 1 year
and 8 months

She Sleeps In Jesus

Little Annie is buried in the churchyard at St. Stephen's Anglican Church in Lachine, Quebec, Canada.

St. Stephen's is a beautiful small church and is the oldest Anglican church on the Island of Montreal. Quite a few of the older gravemarkers are flat on the ground, like Annie's. They are starting to sink into the earth and many already have new grass or moss starting to cover them. It's a shame that the caretaker of the church can't try to keep them clear.
