I posted Tombstone Tuesday - Samuel and Mary Ann Vaux on 12 February 2013 showing the Find A Grave memorial for Samuel and Mary Ann (Underhill) Vaux, and then requested photographs of their gravestone on Find A Grave. Then I found an evidence conflict and wrote about it in How Can I Resolve This Evidence Conflict? (posted 27 March 2013) and (hopefully) resolved it in The Samuel Vaux Death Date Evidence Conflict - is it Resolved? (posted 15 April 2013) The latter post showed the gravestone detail of Samuel Vaux's stone, but not of Mary Ann Vaux's stone.
Here is the Find A Grave memorial page for Mary Ann Underhill Vaux (1815-1883):
Here is the gravestone photograph of Mary A. Vaux's gravestone (courtesy of S.J. Oregon who fulfilled my photograph request and permitted me to show the photographs):
The gravestone inscription is:
The information on the burial card from the cemetery records that I posted in How Can I Resolve This Evidence Conflict? has a birth date of May 5. The Find A Grave memorial page also says Mar. 5. A magnified look at the stone inscription makes the birth date look like Mar. 5 rather than May 5 - there is no descender, and there is a period indicating an abbreviation. But none of the other letters on the stone have descenders. I am using March 5 in my database.
The gravestone, the cemetery card and the Find A Grave entry are the only sources that I have for Mary Ann (Underhill) Vaux's birth date and death date.
