Old Burial Hill

Off Orne Street, immediately adjacent to Redd’s Pond.

Ambrose Gale’s wife Mary is buried here. Her epitaph reads: “Here Lyeth ye Body of Mary Galle ye Wife of Ambros Galle Aged 63 Years Decd February ye 5 1694/5.” Of particular interest in this cemetery, though totally unrelated to the witchcraft, is the superb gravestone of Susanna Jayne, carved by the eighteenth-century master stonecutter Henry Christian Geyer.
