Mr. Williams, brother to old Mrs. Squires, widow of Martin Squires, and now a resident at Roann. Her husband, Martini Squires, sold out and started for Minnesota, but he died on his way there, and the family returned. Abraham Fisher, somewhat old; Mrs. Good, fifty-five or sixty years of age. The graveyard is not now in use."
