BACKGROUND - This ground here occupied for burial purposes was the property of Elihu Tallman and was never conveyed by him, but reserved when the property was sold to James M. More.  It is occupied by the public by common consent.  The writer wishes success to those who would care for and adorn a ground so full of memories of the good and useful, who have passed away. (Edwin E. Tallman, son of C.P.)
