This lovely collection of poems was compiled from tombstones in and around Stamford, CT, to preserve these existing works of folk art before they are forever lost. This book contains about 370 poems from 45 different burial grounds. They are listed according to the areas from which they came, so the researcher can locate them without a problem. Each entry gives the name of the deceased, date of death, final age, and the epitaph as it reads on the grave marker. The book is not intended to be a genealogical guide, but the authors do provide names of several reference books in case the reader is interested in the family histories. Maps of Stamford, Darien and the original Stamford area of New Canaan before 1801 are included; along with the maps is a listing of all the cemeteries, providing their location, general condition, and dates of existence.
