A MILITARY FAMILY.
Tour "f Tut Persons Buried in One
Plot Served the United States.
Of the ten persons buried in one of the family
plots in Trinity Cemetery, at 153 d street and
Broadway, four were in their lifetime Identified
with the military or naval service of tho United
Btates, and three of them died as a result of
this service. Few of those who pass the spot
know this fact or have an opportunity to learn
it, for tho graves are marked only with abbre
viated headstones bearing the initials of the
persons whose dust lies beneath them, and the
only conspicuous characteristic of the monu
ment which stands in the centra of tho plot,
with its head buried in the low canopy of
foliage that shelters it from sun and rain alike.
Is a mitre In bass relief. This does not suggest
a militant family, but if one were not prohibited
by the rules of the cemetery from walking
around to the south side of the stone one would
find that Inscribed there were the names and
records of those descendants of the wearer of
the mitre lying in the plot who gave up their
lives for their country. That face Is a sort of
tablet of honor. It is so full that not another
name could be added, although there are still
other descendants not burled there whose names
might fittingly be carved upon it.
The plot Is that of the Very Rev. Dr. Jonathan
Hayhew Wainwright, who was appointed to
•Wear the mitre of the Protestant Episcopal Dio
cese of New York In 1852 as the successor of
Bishop Onderdonk, and his descendants. Two
of his descendants lost their lives while in the
navy and two while in the army, while a fifth
now a cadet at West Point. The body of
Commander Jonathan Mayhew Wainwright and
Major David "Wadsworth Wainwright, sons;
Amelia Maria, a daughter and wife of Colonel
Henry C. Bankhead. U. S. A., and Ensign Jona
than Mayhew Wainwright. a son of the com
mander and grandson of the bishop, lie in the
plot Captain Robert P. P. Wainwright. an
other grandson and a brother of the ensign. Is
buried elsewhere- His sen ls at West Point.
Commander Wainwright was killed In an ac
tion with the Confederates near Galveston early
on the morning of January 1, 1563, while, in
command of the gunboat Harriet Lone. As
(Commander of the Lane be had taken part In
the captures of New Orleans and Vleksburg.
His son, the third to bear the name of Jona
than Mayhew, entered the Naval Academy about
the time of his father's death. He died In 1570
when only twenty-one years old, from wounds
received in an action with pirates near San
