HUNTINGTON BURYING-PLACES, STRATFORD, CONNECTICUT, PART IV*
"The first meetinghouse in Ripton was located about half a mile east of the present churches of Huntington Village a little way up the hill, on the north side of the road, where now are four grave-stones with inscriptions, and several others without any lettering or dates. The following are the inscriptions still remaining; several stones, doubtless, having been removed."
*"There are in this burying-place three hundred and twenty or more graves without descriptions; most of them marked by small field stones set at the head and foot of each. It is said to be difficult to make a new grave in this yard without digging into a former grave. There have been in all about _____ burials made in this place. The yard has an elegant iron fence around it and is finely and creditably cared for."
