John Band

Memorial Number: 26*

A memorial recording of this headstone was taken in July 2017.  Portions of the incised inscription were clear but worn, and other areas were too weathered to be legible.  The inscription that was distinguishable read:  

HERE LYETH THE BODY
OF JOHN BAND WHO DEP
ARTED THIS LIFE ____
OF MARCH 1718 AGED 29
**

Note:  It appears that this gravestone had been used previously.  There were traces of text written on the bottom of this gravestone.  The bottom edge of Band’s stone was originally the top of another person’s gravestone.
