Transcription by Stone Order   (also with links to sketches)

I have inserted an apostrophe in the transcribed inscriptions before superscripted lettering because not all printers/typewriters/browsers use the same coding to reproduce this effect.

a slash "/" indicates the end of a line of engraving on the gravestone.

blue Stone #s indicate gs sketched or photographed - click to view.

DOBs followed by an "a" are calculated from the DOD on the gravestone minus the AGE on the gravestone.

[bracketed italics] indicate the info is from other vital or town records; but, not actually on the stone (this info is added to identify the deceased when the info on the stone is illegible or insufficient).
