Description
  • Burial records kept by George Stokes, sexton of St. Peter's, from 1789 to 1793. Burials are listed by date and include the decedent's name, age at time of death, and amount paid for burial. Names of spouses or parents are often noted, as well as cause of death. Of note are the many deaths due to "fever," as yellow fever reached epidemic proportions in Philadelphia in 1793. Also of interest are the interments of the Native American Chiefs who came to visit President Washington and died in Philadelphia of smallpox. The final entry in the book is George Stokes himself, aged 56 years.
