Cemetery notes and/or description:
Location: Bestwick Trail at telephone pole #6. Bestwick Trail has been blocked off just before the cemetery. There is a gravel pit access road that crosses Bestwick between the barricade and the cemetery. The cemetery has been badly vandalized and most stones are broken and displaced. The cemetery had a very nice cut stone wall but about 1/3 of it has now been tumbled.

60ft x 60ft enclosed with a stone wall

25 burials with 12 inscriptions from 1818 to 1872

Surveyed by:
[1] Arnold [22 Aug 1905, Vol. 6, Book C, pg. 1277]: "On the Christopher Whipple farm back of house in edge of wood, lot walled and fenced, in good order, yard some neglected. On road leading from the Washington Village to West Greenwich by the Misnuck Pond."
[2] Arnold [21 Oct 1893, Vol. 6, Book 17, page 459]: "On the Elder Battey farm formerly known as the Whipple farm, southeast from Washington Village."
