For Tombstone Tuesday today I am not actually showing a tombstone in a graveyard.
This tombstone for Catharine James (nee Read) sits on a wall inside St. Mary’s Church at Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
Catharine is the granddaughter of my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read. Her father is Robert Read and it is through Robert’s line that I am descended.
Tombstone of Catharine James (nee Read)
who departed this Life
15th April 1796
in the 27th Year
of her Age
Apart from her baptism, marriage to James James and her death and burial I really don’t know any more about Catharine. I shall continue to delve into records to see if I can find out more about her. Just so sad that she died at such a young age.
