PLEASE NOTE: The Quaker Church Cemetery on Jugg Street in Moravia, near the intersection of 38A, and the little Hall Cemetery up the same road have several rows of Slate Stone markers 8-10" in height, in the rear of each Cemetery. These are determined to be very early Quaker graves. The Quakers were not permitted to have inscribed tombstones until 1842, as it was considered to be too worldy, and against their doctrine of plainess. Both cemeteries are close to the location of the 1804 Sempronious Friends Meeting House located on Jugg Street earlier known as the "Quaker Church Road". Hall Cemetery has 35-40 markers, and Quaker Church has over 50." BELDING large monument, 10 ft. high, down flat BELDING,William d. July 8, 1847 ae 71y 4mo 20da Caty wife of William Belding d.
