|Death: ||Mar. 14, 1863|
Annie was one of more than 40 victims, most of them young girls, who were killed or fatally wounded in the explosion at the Confederate States Laboratory munitions plant on Brown's Island on March 13, 1863.
She was originally buried in Range 27, Sec. 21, but moved (along with many other family members) when the City of Richmond widened 4th Street and took that space.
While a family marker bearing her name and three others has been at her gravesite for many years, a new marker created by a local Richmond chapter of the Order of the Confederate Rose was dedicated on March 15, 2014.
Her name also appears on a special marker remembering all of the victims who are buried at Shockoe Hill. That marker was dedicated by the "Friends of Shockoe Hill Cemetery" on March 17, 2013. It stands in Range 13, Sec. 15, very near the graves of six of the girls.
