Tombstone Tuesday- Southwick Memorial

Continuing with my research of my Quaker heritage and my 9th great grandparents Lawrence and Cassandra Southwick, I present for Tombstone Tuesday, a Memorial on Shelter Island.  Unveiled on July 17th, 1884 on the Sylvester Manor house burial ground.  The inscription reads: 
"Lawrence and Cassandra Southwick, Despoiled, imprisoned, starved, whipped, banished, Who fled here to die".

  1. Wow! I've never been to see this memorial. I love your photo of it! I wish I had seen this before I replied to your email inquiry today!

  2. I am assuming public access? Been aware of but have yet to make the trip. Also my 9th great grandparents. Through the Gaskill line
