Information in parentheses taken from Wolcott’s inscriptions. No longer visible on headstone.
Catherine, wife of Austin, died July 30, 1822, aged 25 years “C.B.”
(Catherine Badger’s original headstone is still here also. It is very worn but reads: “Catharine, wife of Austin Badger, who died July 30th “. The rest of the stone is unreadable. Note that the spelling of her first name is different on each stone. Her name also appears on a headstone with her husband and his other wives in the Old Medina Cemetery in Medina, Ohio. That engraving spells her name as `Catharine’ but gives her age as 21 years. The inscription confirms that she is buried in Montville, Ohio.)

(Her name appears on a headstone with her husband and his other wives at Old Medina Cemetery in Medina, Ohio. That engraving gives her middle initial as `L’ but confirms that she is buried in Montville, Ohio.)

Mary also appears on a headstone with her husband and his second wife in Spring Grove Cemetery in Medina, Ohio. Spring Grove’s records show no mention of her so we can assume that she is still buried here.

ALSO KNOWN TO BE BURIED HERE…
Infant daughter of P & L, who died Nov. 3, 1830 – taken from Wolcott’s inscriptions for this cemetery; no headstone can be found now.
Nancy, wife of Austin, died Mar. 5, 1849, aged 47y – taken from the MCGS book inscriptions; no headstone can be found now. Her name appears on a headstone with her husband and his other wives at the Old Medina Cemetery in Medina, Ohio. The inscription confirms that she is buried in Montville, Ohio.
“In memory of Francis R.”, son of R.B. & M.E., died Oct. 18, 1845, AE. 15m – taken from Wolcott’s early Montville burials list. A brother by the same parents who died the same year within a few days is buried here. We assume this child would be also.
FORMERLY BURIED HERE…
Albert, son of Linus & Julia, born 1855, died July 13, 1862 – his body was eventually reinterred in his father’s burial vault on the family property. It was later stolen from that vault but recovered. He is now buried in Spring Grove Cemetery (Section 4, Lot 104); having been moved there along with his parents in 1894. We can assume he was originally buried here since the burial vault was not built until 1879.
