From the 1888 edition of the Papers of the New Haven Colony Historical Society Volume IV, "Inscriptions on Tombstones in Guilford Erected Prior to 1800." These are the inscriptions off of gravestones in Guilford, CT.

I DO NOT HAVE ANY FURTHER INFORMATION ON ANY OF THESE PEOPLE. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL FOR MORE INFORMATION- I DO NOT HAVE IT!

I scanned and OCRed the original 1888 edition of the New Haven Colony Historical Society book containing these headstone inscriptions. I have made some changes in the text version:
Editing the mistakes in the raw OCR is an ongoing process. Hopefully I'll get the entire file fixed someday.

1. Some names were spelled out instead of leaving them abbreviated. This is so search engines will find the names.
2. Dates using a J instead of a 1 were converted.
3. Names using f instead of s were converted. All other f's were left alone.
4. Footnotes in the original text were brought up, enclosed in { } curly brackets, and placed next to the cemetery. So, an entry might look like this:

24 [North Guilford] {footnote} - The number to the left is the number assigned to the stone in the 1888 text, the cemetery name is in brackets, and then comes a footnote.

5. I gave up on keeping the formatting of the book. At some point I started keeping names on one line and breaking the entries where convienient. Look at the page images to see the original formating

If you want to look at an image of the page an inscription comes from scroll up until you see a PAGE NNN which should be a hyperlink. Click on that phrase and an image will load. These are BIG images for clarity, and to enable people to print out hard copies if desired. If your browser is set to shrink images to fit in the browser window you probably will not be able to make out anything. If you print out landscape mode you should get about 150 dpi resolution.
The index for the 1888 volume can be found by clicking

FINISHED ON SEPTEMBER 7, 2002- PLEASE REPORT ANY MISTAKES.

 

This is a stone for which I found a picture, but no entry in the book:

In Memory of Mr Thom Burges who dies March 28, 1796 in the 87 year of his age.

The first burials in Guilford were around the church on the town green. Such of the tombstones set up there as now exist, have been removed to new cemeteries in different quarters of the town.
These pages include copies of all legible inscriptions prior to 1800, on tombstones now standing in any part of Guilford. The arrangement of the names is alphabetical, with the partial exception that parents and minor children are grouped together under the father's name. The burial ground in which each stone is to be found, is indicated between brackets at the head of the inscription. A few come from family burial-places. Those marked [North Guilford] are from the cemetery there, near the churches. The annotations are numbered according to the inscriptions to which they refer. The following is a list of the principal burial-places referred to:

ALDERBROOK CEMETERY.
LEETE'S ISLAND CEMETERY.
MOOSE HILL CEMETERY.
NORTH GUILFORD CEMETERY.
RIVERSIDE CEMETERY.
WEST CEMETERY.

In annotating the inscriptions, the Publication Committee have made free use of Smith's History of Guilford, Dexter's Biographies of Yale Graduates 1701-1745, the Baldwin Genealogy, the Chittenden Family Memorial, the Leete Family Memorial, and Sprague's Annals of the American Pulpit. The copies from the grave-stones were made by Mr. Elias B. Bates of Guilford, under the direction of a special committee of the Society, consisting of Rev. Win. G. Andrews, D.D., and Mr. Frank L. Hotchkiss.
