Mary Ratcliff Andrews

Birth: Dec. 20, 1807
Virginia, USA
Death: May 14, 1880
Iowa, USA

In 1880 Mary Ratcliff Andrews died and was buried in the Prairieville Cemetery, across the road from their farm. The weather and roads were very bad that spring, and Mary told her sons not to try to bury her beside her husband at Bangor. It was about 18 miles away and would have been a terrible trip under the existing conditions. The Prairieville Cemetery was close and many other Friends (Quakers) were buried there.
