- Thanks to the Hancock House , all of the cemeteries in Ticonderoga are now online! If you are conducting research in Essex County, they have a large collection worth investigating!
- NOTE: This transcription is dated May 14, 1845. What follows is typed verbatim.
- "These stones are in an old cemetery in the edge of the woods almost in a direct line behind the buildings on the Blind Brook Farm owned by Dr. Gaul on the Baldwin Road in Ticonderoga, N.Y."

Yet gracious God thou doth not leave
My soul forever with the dead
Nor lose thy children in the grave.

As you are now, so once was I

(NOTE: wife of Isaac Morse. The stone does not say so but that section is broken off and as the grave is directly beside the grave of Isaac, it seems safe to assume that Eliza was his wife.)
Beside the grave of Eliza Morse is another grave from which the headstone has disappeared. Only a footstone with the initials A M. mark it.

Taken from the August 2, 1894 issue of the Ticonderoga Sentinel. These are the same stones listed in the cemetery records but there are some variations and since this copy puclished by the Sentinal was made some 60 years ago, the chances are that they are correct as the stones would have been much clearer then.
