Barratt's Chapel, Frederica, DE: Gravemarkers

These are what appear to be the oldest gravemarkers at the church. These range from rough-cut to semi-dressed fieldstone markers and are located on the east side of the church structure. Each marker is carved! (I am including several shots of each stone for my own reference.)
