Jefferson County, NY Tombstones Holley/Holly

She was called Aunt Nabbie her whole life so that's what they put on her tombstone.  Her names was Abigail Holley.  She was a spinster, the sister of Numon Holley, my 3rd great grandfather.  She lived with Numon in Ellisburg until her death on 1 April 1866.  She is buried in Giddingsville Cemetery, Jefferson County, New York.
