The oldest headstone that we came across in the graveyard was to the memory of John Neagle who died on 23 March 1760, aged 69. Another old headstone of mention that we found in the graveyard was in memory of Thomas Franklin who died on 15 June 1766 at the age of 104 according to the inscription on the headstone.
