Many of the graves contain inscriptions commemorating or epitomizing the deceased. Here is a sampling:

“Look at my grave as you stand by, As you are now so once was I. As I am now so you must be, Prepare yourself to follow me.”

The response to this epitaph is:

“To follow you I’ll not consent Until I know which way you went.”

On the tombstone of Ida May Brown:

“Thy hands are clasped upon thy breast, We’ve kissed thy lovely brow. We know that in our aching hearts, We have no Ida now.”

“Farewell dear friends my memory keep, While in deaths arm my body sleeps. Short was my stay with you below. Sooner or late all must go.”

“Sleep, gently sleep beneath this sod. Till angels take thee to meet thy God.”
