FIRST MARKED BURIAL
Elijah H. Fleming
Sept. 25, 1802 - April 8, 1848

There may have been burials in this cemetery prior to 1848, however, this grave is the earliest one with an engraved headstone which shows a date. His daughter Mary, who died at approximately 17 years of age on March 14, 1858, is the second earliest grave with a marked headstone. Unfortunately many graves are marked with only field stones, and some are not marked at all.
