Excerpt from A Record of the Inscriptions on the Tablets and Grave-Stones in the Burial-Grounds of Christ Church, Philadelphia: Compiled and Arranged at the Request of Vestry

The property on which the church is built was pur chased in the year 1695, only thirteen years after the city was founded, and when the population numbered about The first church interments were made in this ground, but the population of the city increasing rapidly, it was soon found necessary to secure a lot in the suburbs for a burial-place. Accordingly, in the year 1719, the ground at Fifth and Arch Streets was pur chased, and most of the interments were afterwards made there. Almost all the old families of Philadelphia will find that the remains of some of their ancestors rest in this hallowed ground, as it was for a long time the main repository of the dead in the city. The earliest date, as at present seen on the inscriptions, is 1721, but interments were made there during the year it was Opened, and no stones appear to have been placed over the graves. It is a cause of regret that tablets were not always erected over every grave, as memorials of the departed.
