As I devoted my last post to H. H. Warner’s Death Certificate, it seemed appropriate to followup with a post on the site where his remains remain. Specifically, Warner elected to be buried next to his first wife, Martha Keeney, in Skaneateles, New York. Martha had died suddenly in 1871, well before Warner’s Safe Cure empire took off. Below is a photograph of the stone marking the gravesite.
The marker carries the following inscriptions. On the front, it reads:
H. H. Warner
Martha, wife of H. H. Warner
Died Jan. 25, 1871
Aged 23 Years, 7 Months & 7 days
The right side of the stone reads:
Died Aug. 27, 1847
Ellen E. Keeney
Died Oct. 26, 1855
Clearly, the marker belonged to Martha’s parents. By the time of his demise, Warner was likely not in a financial position to purchase an exquisite grave marker. He will spend enternity with his in-laws. Special thanks to Jack Stecher for lending me this photograph and providing a transcription of the engraving on the marker.
