The following stones were found, numbered approximately
from east to west and north to south:
1. Fieldstone headstone and footstone, most likely for a child due to the
distance between. By itself along the east edge of the cemetery.

8. Bottom half of a large tablet, most likely for an adult. It was
placed where it was found--to the far southwest of the other stones. There
is no way of knowing where it actually belongs because the long tablet type
stone does not require a base.

1. William Devenport (on the farmland that he owned) 10-17-1839
2. William S. Devenport 3-9-1855
