Real Name- 'Kate Simpson'

A volunteer paid for a marker to be placed at her grave in September 1997, bearing the inscription-


"Kate McCormick Seduced and pregnant by her father's friend, unwed, she died from abortion, her only choice. Abandoned in life and death by family. With but a single rose from her mother. Buried only through the kindness of unknown benefactors. Died Feb.1875 age 21.

Victim of an unforgiving society ,Have mercy on us."
