    [:TAB:]

    His grave was also found by the intrepid gravebusters ( Richard, Barry and Gareth ) in September 1988. Their interpretation of the wording is remarkably good considering the conditions of the sandstone. The grave was found in the undergrowth beneath a small clump of trees behind Thomas' grave in the only neglected part of an otherwise well-kept churchyard.


    The anomalies are that Elizabeth's age was thought to read 71 in stead of the 74 recorded in the transcripts; 74 is correct. Susannah's age appeared to be 3 weeks in stead of 3 months; three weeks is correct.
