NOTE: Louise Coulson relates an anecdote concerning Seth Sherwood. I understood her 
to say that he was originally buried in the cemetery next to the Baptist Meeting 
House on Goose Lane. When the farmer who owned the land surrounding the burying 
ground wanted to plow up this area, burials were dug up and re-interred, Seth 
into this one at Sherwood Corners. It was decided to open the coffin at that time and 
a lady who was a very small child at that time, told Louise that he looked just as though 
he had just been buried, lying there in full Masonic regalia, and then went quickly to 
dust before her eyes. This was almost one hundred years after his death. M.C.
