Birth: Feb. 14, 1820
Death: Dec. 5, 1871

As a Madame during the Civil War years, Haycraft had a lucritive business in her house. Desite her wealth she was refused a burial plot in Bellefontaine Cemetery. After exerting pressure on the trustees, they reluctantly sold her a large plot on the condition that no tombstone or marker of any kind be placed on the lot. To this day, there is no marker & she rests alone in the 21-grave plot. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
