"Job Briggs and his wife Patience Greene were members of the Friends Society (Quakers) attending the meeting house located on Quaker Lane just north of Crum Elbow Four Corners and both are laid at rest in this cemetery as well as ten of his twelve children, six of whom rest in unmarked graves in the old section, it being thought very improper at this early date to erect monuments to mark their graves.In fact many such stones that were erected were destroyed by the over-pious members."
