Memorial Embroidery by Mary Ann Huntington and Alza Huntington
The inscription on the gravestone reads "HER Hand first drew these blooming flowers, Which now her silent Tomb adorn; Pass yet a few more fleeting Hours, Some fleeting Hand may deck my Urn."
Mary Ann and Alza were the youngest of Daniel and Sibyl (Tomlinson) Huntington’s nine children, all born in Woodbury, CT. The memorial embroidery provides the only link between the two sisters and their possible attendence at the Litchfield Female Academy.
