In 1825 when her parents had another daughter, they named her Huldah after this sister Huldah who died in 1816. Apparently this was not uncommon as Audrey Mae’s aunt Mandy was named after her sister who had died earlier.

According to Audrey Mae, Hezekiah (gravestone No.15)  and Waite (née Briggs) Spencer had twelve children. Six of their children are buried in this cemetery. Their gravestones are gravestone number 25, 26, 27,28,29 and 30.
