Location of Graves

American Friend, January 18, 1822


In order to prevent the confusion originating from a promiscuous location of graves, and preserve a regularity of interment of the deceased, &c. the Town Council have appointed Mr. Joseph Glines, superintendent of the Burying-ground square, within this town, and request all, who may be required to perform the last duties to their deceased friends, to call upon him for the purpose of locating their graves.

By order,
R. Prentiss, Town Clerk.
Jan. 14th, 1822
