Note: The gravestone was damaged at some point and was incased in concrete cement as a repair. A ‘ghost line' crack in the cement can be seen near the top so it can be assumed that that is the actual top of the stone. The words ‘In memory', the letter ‘s' in Mrs., and ‘Re' in Rebeckah are missing (under cement?). Rebecca appears to be spelled Rebeckah and the old English letter ‘ʃ' is used instead of ‘s' in the spelling of her last name.

Location of Rebecca Peterson's gravesite: The cemetery is at the corner of Chestnut Street and Pilgrim By-Way. The grave is at the rear of the cemetery less than fifty feet from the property line, directly on a cart path and facing Pilgrim By-Way.
