Family Record
By Mrs. Minerva Shill

Eliza, wife of L.H. Scott, died November 1844 and was buried in what was then called the "Everdon" burying ground, as it was donated, or may have been sold by Mr. Everdon, who was located about a mile east of the Scott Place. This interment of my mother, if I am not mistaken, was the first burial on this ground.
