According to R.E. Hawley's book, Amanda Bell was the first burial in the Lynden cemetery. Enoch Hawley was the second. I hope we can learn more of her life.

May songs of the angels welcome you and guide you along your way. May the smiles of the martyrs greet your own as darkness turns into day. Every fear will be undone and death will be no more, as songs of the angels bring you home before the face of God.
