- The gravestone of Jeremiah Mulford, who died "in his 78th year" has a pear-faced soul effigy reminiscent of the style of cutter Uzal Ward of Newark, but its tympanum is additionally decorated with swirls. The inscription reads:
"This body in the dust we lay,
The soul to God has winged her way.
We hope in Christ they will meet,
And reign with him in joys complete."
