Tombstone Tuesday--Susannah Jury McGovern

Susannah Jury, daughter of Abraham Jury and and Anna Maria Weise, was born on September 17, 1823 in Pennsylvania. About 1841 she married Bernard McGovern probably in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania.

The McGoverns lived on a farm south of LeConte's Mills and together they raised eleven children. Susannah is the ggg grandmother of my Michigan Hughes cousins.

Susannah Jury McGovern died on April 7, 1892. The tombstone reads--68 years, 6 months, 21 days. Bernard and Susannah are buried in St. Mary of the Assumption Cemetery, Frenchville, Girard Township, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania.

  1. It looks as though maybe something used to sit on top of the stone since it's so flat on the top. Very pretty.
