Description: 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: Black Baptist Cemetery, Quaker Cemetery, Shuters Hill Cemetery, Christ Church Episcopal Cemetery, Douglas Memorial Cemetery, Lebanon Union Church Cemetery, and Oakland Baptist Church Cemetery. Consult other volumes in this series for additional data on other burial grounds, including nearly three dozen that have been destroyed or abandoned.
