Nancy McKracking Tombstone, Beulah Presbyterian Church Cemetery

A neatly cut tombstone for a young woman who died at the age of 22; the top is damaged, but the inscription is perfect. One wonders whether “McKracking” was the true original spelling of her name, or the stonecutter’s best guess for an illiterate client.
