"At the old burying ground, in Section 20, on the E. Martin land in an early day, was built an Old School Baptist Church, which was used by that denomination for a number of years. ... Among the aged whose remains rest here are ... Alexander Saxon, in 1844, seventy-seven years; Mary Saxon, in 1855, eighty-one years...". Also buried in the Saxon plot with Mary and Alexander are their youngest son Phineas C. Saxon who died at age 24 and a grandson, also named Phineas C. Saxon, who died at age 1.
