Fayetteville Cemetery, Fayetteville-Manlius Road, Fayetteville NY | Officially Marked Monument
Matilda Joslyn Gage died on March 18, 1898. She had directed that her remains be cremated, a radical step in those days. Her ashes were interred beneath this bold tombstone.
The gravestone is inscribed, "There is a
word sweeter than mother, home, or
heaven. That word is Liberty."
