*A loving suggestion from a fellow graver:
May we name her Mu Ming Yue...means Admired Bright Moon. Every woman is special and we shall remember her each time we look at the moon.

Thank you to Annie Mc for the following info:
The Chinese woman went to the USA as caregiver for the children of the Captain and his wife. She did her best to adjust to the different culture but was homesick and isolated. The notes from the book Cape Cod Voyage state that she was never given a name and slowly wasted away fretting to go home. Sadly this young woman died at approx 31 years of age.
CHINESE WOMAN Brought from Hong Cong by Capt. Alpheus Baker Jr. Apr. 5, 1872, aged 31 years.
