CEMETERIES:
Worcester Common Cemetery's Grave Inscriptions - Index
http://www.worcestermass.com/graves/page33.shtml

The following is transcribed from the 1848 book Epitaphs from the Cemetery on Worcester Common by W. S. Barton.
1756
45. Rebecca Elder, dr. of W. and Hester E ; d. July 7; a. 20.
46. Esther Elder, dr. of Wm. and Hester E; d. July 16; a. 6.

1772
142. Esther Elder, w. of Wm. E. (No. 223); d. Aug. 31 ; a. 59.

1786
223. William Elder; d. July 27; a. 79.

[He was one of the "52 Protesters," who in the year 1774 entered
on our town records their Royalist
declaration and protest against the then revolutionary
proceedings in this place. The town afterwards
voted, that the signers of that protest be deemed "unworthy of
holding any town office or honor" until
satisfaction made, and that their recorded protest be entirely
obliterated. Satisfaction was accordingly
made by most of the Protesters, and the record-as may be seen at
the Clerk's office-was made
completely illegible.]

1796
271. Fanny Elder, dr. of John E. Jr. and Lydia E. d. Aug. 13; a. 3.
