Burial Hill, Plymouth, Massachusetts: Its Monuments and Gravestones Numbered and Briefly Described, and the Inscriptions and Epitaphs Thereon Carefully Copied
By Benjamin Drew
Most of the tombstone inscriptions in this work pertain to 18th- and early 19th-century descendants of the Pilgrims and other 17th-century arrivals at Plymouth. While the contents of the 2,163 tombstones vary to some degree, virtually all of them state the name of the deceased, his/her age, and date of death. In many instances we are also given the names of spouses, children, or parents.
