Inscriptions on the Warner Hall Tombstones
These fourteen inscriptions are taken from Lyon G. Tylers 1894 article in the "William and Mary Quarterly". There is some confusion about the tombs, since Mildred Reade Warner has no legible inscription, and the stone of James J. McClanahan was moved to Abingdon Parish Church.
