Mary AGAR's headstone at Gillamoor

In 2002 I took this photograph of a headstone in St. Aidan's churchyard, Gillamoor, North Yorkshire. It is for my 4x-great-grandmother, Mary AGAR. It reads:

"...Mary AGAR the wife of Jonathan AGAR who died Jany 27th 1794 aged 47 years".

Associated surnames in the areas of Farndale, Lastingham and Kirbymoorside include CLARK, PEACOCK and MERCER or MARCER.
