Territorial Women's Memorial Rose Garden
MARY JANE ALEXANDER CLOUGH

Mary Jane, the daughter of pioneers Thomas M. and Catharine Scott Alexander, was born on November 22, 1852, in Brown County, Illinois. She married Alfred Sumner Clough on April 13 (or 23), 1874, in Round Valley, Arizonaa Territory. Mr. Clough cut the first flagpole set up in the Plaza in Prescott.

The Cloughs had two children: Frank Sumner (1875-1892), and Norah Hartzell (1878), who is also represented in the Rose Garden. The Cloughs had an orchard at Point of Rocks and a home in Prescott.

A. S. Clough, according to the September 1898 Miner, "opened my fruit stand at the old place in basement of #122 Montezuma and sell apples by the box, barrel or pound at 3-5 cents... orders of 25 cents or more delivered."

A photo of Mary and the ranch is on display in the Sharlot Hall Museum. The Clough family bible is also in there.

Mary Jane died in Los Angeles, California, on February 22, 1903, and was buried in Citizens' Cemetery.
