    • From the web page of Graham Stewart:

      John and Jane had thirteen children including Ezra, a bachelor preacher, Clarissa Shurtleff, Sara Huffman and Eliza Williams - all buried in this cemetery. Darius Williams, Eliza*s husband, and son Ezra, are also buried here as is Marsana Shurtleff, Clarissa*s daughter. Manda Cowles and her daughter Nellie are also buried here and the relationship to the Burks is unclear. [4]
