The Tomb of Jane Harriet Robinson at Kilfane co Kilkenny
Grave no 127.
This memorial has been cared for and maintained by the community through the years and the railings are painted regurlary by Mrs Miriam Williams the Churchwarden at present Kilfane Church of Ireland.
In the recording of Kilfane graveyard we spent many hours here and made many visits and up until we really put our minds to researching, we did not know who this lady was interred here in this beautiful peaceful setting. We could not identify a mason mark on the tomb itself, or a Smith identified with the railings.
