Needless to say, the text on this memorial is almost undecipherable. The stone was not professionally etched, rather the lettering looks as though it were cut by a hand knife. Visible on the stone is the name "Mary" along with (barely discernible)wife of J (something) Cousins. I'm including a second photo (just as bad) for this memorial. If you want one of them removed, let me know.

     Sarah A. 'Sadie' Cousins was born on 31 May 1862 at Pennsylvania. Death certificate has birthday as Jun 1, 1863.1,2 She married Peter Jasper McGinnis after 7 June 1880.1 Sarah A. 'Sadie' McGinnis died on 14 November 1908 at Sturgeon & Cinder Road, North Fayette Township, Allegheny, Pennsylvania, at age 46. Her obitiary: ~ In an effort to rescue her three-year-old girl from her burning home Mrs. Sarah MCGINNIS was burned to death at Champion, north of Sturgeon, early Saturday morning. The child had been carried from the burning building by Charles MCGINNIS, aged 14 years. The father, Peter MCGINNIS, is an oil pumper for the South Penn Oil Company under Aaron STEELE. About 5 o’clock Saturday morning Charles MCGINNIS was using oil to start a fire in the kitchen. The oil became ignited and the boy hurried to the door to throw the can out. The flames burned his hand and the can fell to the floor. The oil exploded as soon as the can hit the floor and in less than a minute the room was a mass of flames. Mrs. MCGINNIS and seven of the children were on the second floor. The mother was in the act of dressing. The children were still in bed. Charles ran to his mother’s room. The first child carried from the building ran to notify the father, who was pumping about a mile from the home. After the flames made it impossible to carry the children from the house a ladder was secured and the frantic mother carried the children to the open window where the son took them and carried them to the ground. Mrs. MCGINNIS was almost overcome after having rescued all the children, and stepped on the ladder to climb down. The fire by this time commencing to burn away the flooring in the second story. As the mother gathered her children about her she failed to notice her youngest daughter. The distracted woman shouted, “Where is baby?’ and darted back into the burning building. The children stood watching their mother face the flames. It was the last seen of her alive. Mrs. MCGINNIS was in her forty-sixth year. Her maiden name was COUSINS. She was the mother of nine children and was respected by all who knew her. By dint of hard work and good management the family had acquired their own home, which is now laid in ashes. Against a loss of about $1,500 there is but $800 insurance. The heart-rending accident cast a gloom over all the community. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon in the Sturgeon M. E. Church, conducted by Rev. Mr. HARVEY of McDonald and Rev. W. T. HARTLEY of Noblestown. Interment was made in Robinson’s Run cemetery.
