There is one stone left at the Union Cemetery. The library notes only "Bartholomew Musgrave" on a reference card. Debbie MacKinnon and Candace Boudreau were able to get the following information from the stone. It has fallen, broken in half, and is barely legible.
"Here lies the body of Bartholomew Musgrave Who departed this life on the 8th day of October 1837 Aged 79 years and 9 mos Cousin of Ann Musgrave Who departed this life on the 19th? day of June 1833 Aged 71 years and 8 mos" There is also a verse, which was impossible to read.
