From Epitaphs by Samuel A. Green, 1897, p.229:

"In the year 1822, ten or twelve tombs were built on the north side of the Burying Ground, although no mention is made in the town records of any vote on the subject. During a few subse-
quent years, other tombs were built, most of them by Joseph Blood, a stone mason, although no special permission except in a very few instances was given by the town. At the meet-
ing held in March, 1832, the whole subject relating to tombs was placed under the control of the selectmen. It has remained in their hands ever since, although no new tomb has been con-
structed for a long time. When the wall around the ground was relaid in the year 1872, these tombs, with a few exceptions, were filled up, and no further interments are to be made in them.

Such as were not filled up, are indicated by an asterisk [*] in the margin.

Beginning at the north-west corner, near the Baptist Church, the following is a list, in regular order, of the names cut in the
stone facings :"

Tomb #38 from the corner which Samuel Green refers to appears with an asterisk.
