headstone headstone


Assuming the grave marker number agrees with the number in the Book of Deaths in the Pest House as reported in The Advocate, March 17, 1994, then this is the grave of Kennis Fergerson who died May 20, 1864 at age 22. He was single and a mariner. Parents and birthplace are unknown. The left photo with snow was taken January 1988 and published in The Cape Codder January 19, 1988. The right photo was published in the Cape Cod Times March 25, 2007. The photo was part of a story by Mary Ann Bragg about plans to take better care of this historic smallpox cemetery.
