The earliest marked grave is that of Jedediah Shaw, "May 15, 1800." The first person buried here was probably Mrs. Eunice Spalding, who died December 6, 1790. The greatest age inscribed upon any tombstone, marks the grave of Ebenezer Shaw, "100 years, 3 months and 12 days." The oldest person is thus mentioned in a newspaper notice: "Died in Sheshequin, August 22, 1834, Mrs. Elizabeth Myers, aged 105 years." Of persons buried in this cemetery, as shown by ages on tombstones, 38 were over 60; 44 over 70; 29 over 80; 6 over 90; 1 over 100.
