Cemetery records destroyed in a fire in the sexton's cottage in 1889 so burial specifics, including location of grave, are not available.

Discrepencies:
~ First name spelled Jesse in newspaper clipping and Jessie in both death records
~ Age reported as 94 in newspaper clipping and 74 in both death records
~ Death records show death on 23 Oct 1886 but newspaper clipping indicates 25 Oct 1886
