Birth: unknown
Death: Apr. 9, 1735

Born c.1728 and baptized at the Dutch Reformed Church in Belleville, 7-year old Sarah Ogden shares her grave and gravestone with siblings Mary (age 9) and John (age 6). The children of Swain and Mary Ackerman Ogden, the trio died within days of each other in April 1735, victims of a "fearful pestilence", thought to be diptheria, which claimed the lives of many children in the New England and Mid-Atlantic colonies that damp and chilly spring. Their sandstone stele bears a grim soul effigy of the "winged death's head" type and the inscription "Momento Mori".
