Cemetery Listing - Adams/Babcock

In the 1980s Eugenia Powers documented  the stones found in the Adams/Babcock cemetery. This listing was derived from her work, a copy of which was placed in the Waterford library. Once you have reached the cemetery from the road,  stones begin numbering in front of you and progress towards the left.

Since the ground cover of this cemetery is primarily Vinca (Myrtle), it is believed that many additional stones lie beneath the ground cover. To my knowledge, no attempts have been made to expose any of these stones.  Stone numbers have been derived from Eugenia's document. An asterisk identifies those dates obtained from Waterford vital records.
