Grave 26

Sarah Moses

1737 – 1812

Here lies
Sarah Moses
..departed this life ...Kislev 5573

[We do not have Hebrew characters yet]

Aged 58

This is the oldest grave in the burial ground. 

The Hebrew inscription is worn and there is lichen growth, however we have been able to read that the grave is that of Sarah Moses who ‘departed this life Sabbath ……Kislev 5573’, meaning November 1812. 

We are hoping in future that perhaps modern scanning techniques may make it possible to decipher more of the inscriptions which are now very faint. 

At the moment we know nothing more about Sarah.
