Tombstone Inscriptions of Alexandria, Virginia, Volume 4 - Wesley E. Pippenger.
Some of the most valuable information available for genealogical and biographical research is that which is found inscribed on tombstones. It is often intriguing to speculate about any reasons for the choice of epitaph, cited scripture, or craft of monument - some of them being quite ingenious or ornate. This volume continues a series of tombstone inscriptions taken from monuments within the present limits of the City of Alexandria. It contains background discussion, inscription and support data for the following burial grounds: Bethel Cemetery. Bethel Cemetery was established in 1885 and is the resting place for over 10,000 burials. Data was taken from tombstones and burial permits. Each entry may include date of death and birth, age, cause of death, plot location, burial permit number, residence, lace of birth, and place of death. Consult other volumes in this series for additional data on other burial grounds, including nearly three dozen that have been destroyed or abandoned.
