NOTE: the above transcription was provided by the Office of the County Historian. Similar to other transcriptions they generously provided to us, it was taken many years ago, with many cemeteries read years before the site coordinators or current historians were born. The readers passed away long ago and many of the cemeteries they read haven't been walked in a half century or more. Detailed corrections and additional information are important and most welcome, and are placed at the end of the listings. If you have additional information such as Kim has provided to us below, please contact the site co-ordinators, whose email addresses are on the main page of the site.

UPDATE August 5, 2003

I'm descended from/related to the Thorntons and Yorks memorialized at the Zurich Cemetery and have spent several hours studying their gravestones. I'd like to make the following corrections to the transcriptions:

Your transcription has:
THORNTON Elisha May 13, 1854, 74y
The gravestone has another line and actually reads:
Elisha Thornton Died May 13, 1854 Aged 74 years 10 mos. & 28 ds.

Your transcription has:
YORK Mary J. wife of Samuel, July 11, 1845, 20y 9m 3d
I have the following:
Mary J. Wife of Samuel York Died July 14, 1845 Aged 20 years 3 ms & 8 ds Of course I think I'm right, but I haven't gone back and restudied the inscription given your transcription. I don't live near Wayne County, but try to get there every few years to do research.

Your transcription has:
THORNTON Lydia, wife of Charles June 27, 1845, 28y
The gravestone actually says:
Lydia Wife of Chas. Thornton Died June 27, 1845 In her 28 yr.
Of course, "in her 28th year" means she was actually aged 27.

Thanks for your attention.

Best wishes,
