Mary Jenkins
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 7, 1859
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jun. 7, 1885
Burke County
North Carolina, USA

Daughter of Hiram and Lizzie Jenkins.

Notice in the Morganton Star, 1886:

"Died, at this place Sunday the 7th, her birthday, Mary Jenkins, col., eldest daughter of Hiram Jenkins, aged 21 years. She was a consistent member of the A.M.E. Church and died in the faith. We learn that she was to have been married in a few days; thus death visits all classes and conditions."

It is hoped that Mary's grave was among the 15 graves moved after the cemetery cave-in in the summer of 1886, but no evidence provides proof.
