Phenie Tapp Cemetery Marker Dedication
On Thursday, July 18, at 11am, the Friends of Wilderness Battlefield and descendants of Elizabeth Frances “Phenie” Tapp will hold a brief ceremony to rededicate her grave marker at Oak Hill Cemetery, 1902 Plank Road, in Fredericksburg.
After FoWB volunteer Daniel Sheron noticed that her grave marker was in need of repair, FoWB and Phenie’s descendants took immediate steps to make the repair happen.
Out of respect to the part she played in the history of the Wilderness area, and the larger than life character that Phenie was, those involved in the restoration felt a brief ceremony and unveiling of the repaired stone was warranted.
The ceremony will last no more than 30 minutes. The grave is located in Section B, Row 6, Space #33 in the cemetery. All are welcome.
