Cemetery records Immanuel Church
Work on this page is in progress.
Cemetery records provide information on vital statistics about people and their families not available from census
or tax records. At the request of Immanuel Church, Lucy Hazen Barnes and Martha Whitcraft
in 1986 made a detailed
survey of the graves and monuments
inside and outside the church.
We have entered their information into an online database
in order to provide easier examination of the information as well as copies of the original transcription in pdf format.
The records were made available courtesy Camille Foster, Immanuel Church.
Unlike adult male oriented information in tax and census records,
epitaphs provide information on life span, early childhood mortality and multi-generational extended family size.

To the extent that the plots in the survey represent family groupings, a simple count of individuals
gives an idea of the extended family size over several generations. With just 6 pages entered, the
largest families are: Alexander (??), Black (??) and Bond (??). [data not yet correct. I need to fix]
