May eternal damnation be
Upon those in Whaling Port.
Who, without knowing me,
Have maliciously vilified me.
May the curse of God
Be upon them and theirs.

According to local folklore, Mary was at odds with her neighbors in Whaling Port over the number of cats she owned. The neighbors went to court to try to get this headstone changed or removed, but the stone carver had a signed contract and payment in full, so he had to fulfill Mary's wishes.
