*Note: "this yard south of the Mansion House, contains many other graves, marked by rough fieldstones, the enclosure is fenced in by a fence of iron rods held up by granite posts, but everything is in bad shape. Outside of this yard is a single grave, unmarked, but fenced in by iron rails. I was told that this was the grave of a female member of the family who made "a mistake" in morals."
