Frances "Fanny" H. Peachy, like most women buried here, remains largely anonymous. The daughter of a local minister, Frances H. Andrews (1799-1822) married Baltimore saddlemaker Thomas G. Peachy on February 28, 1821. Less than a year later she was dead.
Fanny H. Peachy, Consort of Thomas G. Peachy, who was born November the 24th, 1799; and departed this transitory life February the 11th, 1822, in the 23rd year of her age. The amiable qualities of this interesting female were such as endeared her to all who knew her, she was a dutiful child and a truly affectionate wife. In her early life she bore the cross of Jesus, and by that life she left ample reason to believe that she has ascended to the bright realms of bliss.
Note: Consort, meaning companion or intimate associate, is found on gravemarkers when a wife dies before her husband. A widow is often described as a relict.
