"In this cemetery lie the remains of Savil Simpson, the first settler in this Valley, and who purchased it from the original grantee of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and his descendants, as well as the ancestors of the old families of this town. Also, many of those who served and some of whom gave their lives in the service of their country during the Indian and French Wars, and the War of the American Revolution.
This Cemetery was deeded to the Town of Ashland in 1852 to be forever preserved and held sacred.
To your honor it is entrusted."
