There are several notable women buried in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery; some household names, others more obscure. There are of course members of the Alcott family including Anna, who was the basis of Meg from her sister Louisa May Alcott’s famous book Little Women. There is also Katherine K. Davis, the composer of the Christmas carol “The Little Drummer Boy” and Emily Daniels, who was one of the first women to work behind the camera on television. The first burial in the cemetery was even a woman – Maria Holbrook.
