Hugh & Bridget Donally - NY grave of dau

Today, while stomping through hay fields and woods (Town of Kingsbury, Washington County, NY) looking for an abandoned graveyard of ancestors, I found a grave of:

Mary Jane
Daughter of
Hugh & Bridget Donally
died Apr 5, 1836
aged 8 months.

My cousin told me that at that time, immigrants from Ireland and England built shacks in that area (next to a canal) and lived there for just short periods of time until they found permanent housing.

I don't know if the Donnaly's were related in any way to my ancestors (Brayton), but the grave was about 20 feet from theirs.
