Cemetery notes and/or description:
This is an active, private cemetery that was established in 1793. The first burial was that of Huldah Jones. The cemetery is operated by the Plainville Cemetery Association.

The cemetery is located behind the Sowing Seeds building. The building was once a Baptist Church, and the early burials in the cemetery were of people belonging to the early church. The construction of the current building is commemorated by a large sign between the building and the School Street entrance which states "This chapel erected A.D. 1883 by Celia Magoun in memory of her sister, Beulah S. Holmes." The cemetery itself does not have a sign.

The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as MRS804.

This burial site is referenced to in the book "Old Cemeteries of Southeastern Massachusetts" by Charles M Thatcher as "Cemetery at Skunk Church, Plainville - Marshfield".

This burial site is referenced to in the book "The Mayflower Descendant 1620-1920" published by the "Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants" in Volume 14, published in 1912, page 48.
