Those who tell her story usually begin with the inscription on a gravestone in the Clapp family plot, in Northampton's Bridge Street Cemetery, that reads: "Sally Maminash. The last of the Indians here. A niece of Occum. A Christian. Died in the family of Warham & Sophia Clap. Jan. 3, 1853. Aged 88." The simple marble sits squarely between similarly shaped stones for Sophia and Warham, in front of three small stones for the Clapp children, and is distinguished only by its inscription.
