Further Information and Sources

The inscription on the marker appears to provide a death date of 1851 but the burial register provides 1854.  In all likelihood, the weathering of the marker has obscured the date.

“WELCH” in the lower right hand corner likely refers to E. R. Welch, a noted chiseller and senior partner of E.R. Welch & Son; referenced as ‘E. R. Welch’s Marble Works’ in “1886 Daily Whig – The City As It Was,”  Kingston Historical Society 2011. http://kingstonhistoricalsociety.ca/1886Daily_Whig.html (accessed  14/01/13)
