Note: I did not find "Warren" or "Alzada E." - perhaps these were the stones I found to be 'unreadable' - they would certainly be the oldest.
There are several different spellings of the surname, even on the same stone! Several were hard to read, so "?" was used.

who died Sept. 27, 1840
aged 6y & 2m
