Grave of "an Amiable Child"
New York, New York
This is one of only three private graves in Manhattan. St. Claire Pollock, described on his tombstone as "an amiable child," died at age five, in 1797, probably when he fell off of the nearby cliffs onto the rocks down by the Hudson River.
A hundred years later, another of the three private Manhattan graves was built across the street -- the massive tomb of former president Ulysses S. Grant.
