About this stone
There is a reference in the book "Vital Records of Rochester, Massachusetts to 1850", Published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, for "GR#23 - in woods center of Rochester". This reference is for "Elizabeth Atwood/wife of ASAPH ATWOOD/died Oct. 17, 1828 40 yrs." and states that the body is buried in the woods.

This requires more research. Is this the same stone? When was it moved? Was the body moved? Research is ongoing.
