Mary Squires Carver
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 12, 1816
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 23, 1882, USA

Though tombstone photo would appear to show born in "Mar" at first glace, following some photo editing, it instead is more likely to read born in "Apr". This reading is also consistent with an earlier source, "Tombstone Inscriptions-Kalamazoo County, Michigan", Vol I & Vol II, Beard Cemetery-Sec. 31, Wakeshma Twp., Kalamazoo, County (part in Leonidas Twp., St. Joseph Co., MI), pg 599: "Carver, Mary, wife of John Apr. 12, 1816-Mar. 23, 1882".

Maiden name widely reported to be SQUIRES (1810 census) but also can be found as SQUIRE (father's grave marker, 1835).
