Jennet Ashburn

In his diary entry for 29th June 1823 her son David writes:

"My mother, Jennet Cragg of Greenbank in Wyresdale departed this life this forenoon about 11 o'clock having been weakly and poorly for a long time and was clear worn out by old age in every respect, aged 82 years and 10 months. She and my father had been married and lived together for 60 years and five months. I went in the afternoon to see them. They was very sorrowful, my father, Titus and Ann, but Ann seemed to be the most so. I helped Titus to make out a list of persons to be bid to the burial. About 50 in number and I had a bill of the charge of Ann Pye's burial expenses which I handed to him as it would be some guide for him to buy stuff by as without it he would have had no idea at all of the matter. My father proposes to bury at Wyresdale meeting house in the new ground and when his turn comes to be laid beside her as he told us.

2nd July 1823. A fine hot day. At noon myself, Isaac, Timothy, Margaret and Mary went to the funeral of my mother. All got dinner and we set off from the house soon after two o'clock and walked very slow. She was buried in the new ground at Wyresdale meeting, the south west corner of the graveyard near the south wall and east fence towards the brook. A very nice, dry place and a grave of sufficient depth. There was present at the burial besides my father and family 56 in all."
