This Week in Titusville, February 9, 1888 also reported

Died on Wednesday, January 25th, at Cape Canaveral Lighthouse, Mrs. Mary Burnham relict of the late Capt. Mills O. Burnham.  She was born on the 17th of August 1820, and was therefore in her 68th year.  Her loss is mourned by her five daughters and a large circle of grandchildren and great granchildren.

One of the three Burnham windows at St. Gabriel's is in memory of Mary Burnham. When installed, in November 1891, the window in memory of Capt. Burnham (Lighthouse on the right below) was described by the Star as a beautiful piece of workmanship well worth seeing.

  1. Beautiful windows. There's not a lot of Victorian stained glass in Florida. These are nice examples.
