An attempt to preserve burial records is a seri ous and far from satisfactory undertaking. Such data are often wrong or incomplete. In some cases, where there are no markers, the cemetery or town records furnished the facts required. This was only possible, with accuracy, since 1892, when the law made imperative the registration of vital statistics, and when the situation of the grave was still known. Many burial grounds are entirely lost.
Ancient burial inscriptions, for a period of many years in the town's history, provide the only inform ation of many early residents. The names of some of them will never be found hereafter except in these lists, as they were transcribed long ago and the tab lets themselves are defaced or entirely gone.
