Mary Haven Usher Grannis

Born: 1827
Died: 1856


Mary and husband Joseph Wells Grannis (note the replaced headstone incorrectly has a surname of Grazzini) moved to Downers Grove around 1853 with their first child William John. Two years later she gave birth to a daughter, also named Mary. Sadly the mother died as a result of the childbirth, the day after the birth of her daughter. Her husband, Joseph, moved back east with the two children and remarried.

You may also notice that the surname mentioned here is different than the headstone. This was the result of a replacement of the original headstone that was illegible. This headstone also, indicates her husband is also buried with her but that is not the case. He moved away from Downers Grove after her death and later remarried.
