Old Hull Burying Ground - Hull, Ma.
"This collection comprises all the inscriptions, which are at all legible, found upon the various stones & monuments in the only burying-ground in Hull. There are a few rough stones, partially broken or buried in the ground, upon which inscriptions once existed, but are now too much defaced and weatherbeaten, where exposed to the elements, to allow thier various memorials to be even partially decyphered. Two or three dates, only, are preserved from the fragments of stone found in the enclosure; one, with the title of a name, "Capt.," and the date, "Died April ye 2d 1708." the earliest date found; one with the date only of "April 30, 1718," and another of "Sept 30, 1759." The burying-ground is situated towards the easterly part of the town, on the west side of the road so constantly frequented in the summer season by parties visiting Nantasket Beach, and is but a short distance from the Marine telegraph station at Hull, and the coast in the vicinity of the lower light in Boston harbor. The number of deaths recorded in this collection is one hundred and three."
