Samuel Robbins

The gravestone for Samuel Robbins (d. 1831) is badly weathered. That doesn’t stop us from reading it—or at least trying to!

The bad news is that just when you think you can make it out, you realize that some of the inscription is buried.

The good news is that someone took the time to read and record the inscribed information when it was legible.

Data from a 2010 walk-through of Fancher Cemetery, (which took advantage of earlier readings of the cemetery) helps us fill in some of the blanks on this gravestone.
