"On the farm of Charles Malcuit, on Sharon Mountain, in a pasture field, are two headstones inscribed as below. There are evidences of many graves that are not marked, but no one seems to remember any more about it than can now be discovered by a visit to it. it is large in area for a family burying ground, and doubtless was a neighborhood affair, before the one in the "Cartwright neighborhood" was used."
The two headstones mentioned above are documented as follows...
CARTWRIGHT, Samuel, s. of Samuel and Abiel, d. Feb. 9, 1774, ae. 11 mos., 9 dys.
HUTCHINSON, Mr. Ezra, d. Feb. 28, 1799, ae. 40.
