This simple stone was raised over Truth's grave in 1890.
Her friend and biographer, Frances Titus, received $44 in contributions to erect the stone.
This marker erroneously gives Truth's age at her death as 105 years.
She was actually about 86 years old, since her birthdate is estimated to have been 1797
