Old City Cemetery
Grave markers in Old City Cemetery of two members of the same family who died in the yellow fever epidemic that hit Tallahassee in 1841. The outbreak began in May and continued until the end of October. Mary Ann Scott died on Sunday evening, June 27th ("age 23 years, 7 days"). Mrs. Rebecca Scott died on July 3rd ("27 years and 24 days old") and is actually identified on her grave marker as the "consort" of Andrew Scott.
