1887 slave's grave

The original gravestone of Mary Ann Simmes from 1887. Betsy Welsh, Mickey Evans, and other members of the St. Philip's Episcopal Church cemetery committee, researched a story behind a former slave's grave site located at the church dating back to 1887. Members recently placed a new marker at her grave site, as the original was very weathered and hard to read.
