Harlow Cemetery

Transcribed by Wendy L. Callahan
June, 2004

I have done my best to accurately transcribe the stones found in the Harlow Cemetery on Cherry Street, however I did not have the benefit of a partner to double-check my research.

If you find errors, please inform me at so I may make the necessary corrections.

This is a fairly small cemetery, thus I have not designated rows in this transcription. The markers are transcribed in order from the first row to the last, front to back.
