Lot 434 Grave 8 A Beech Avenue Church of the Advent Lot
 Bessie A. Marks was born in England in 1849 to John and Elizabeth Brown Marks who were both natives of England. She was a Nurse, a resident of 31 Gardner Street in Allston, and died on November 19, 1925, from Arterio Sclerosis-General and Hemorrhage of 4 days duration. Herbert C. LeBuff was the undertaker, and she was first interred in Grave 39 on November 21, 1925. Miss Marks was 76 years, 4 months, and 28 days old, and her remains were transferred to Grave 8 A on December 29, 1925.

Gardner Street was named for Colonel Thomas Gardner, a resident of what was then called Little Cambridge, who was mortally wounded at the Battle of Bunker Hill in Charlestown on June 17, 1775, and for whom the city of Gardner, Massachusetts, was named. Allston was named for the artist, Washington Allston.
