I’m not one for cemeteries, but stumbling upon one which contains a marker stating  “killed 1777 by explosion making powder for Gen. Washington” I will admit; I was really intrigued.  I researched the headstones as best I could and if you mouse over the pics (sorry mobile users!) you will see the description of what is on each headstone.
