New Hampshire  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
This is a very old cemetery, reputed to be the first one in Lyman. Almost all stones are gone.

Mrs Charles Carpenter Goss in her "Colonial Gravestone Inscriptions in the State of New Hampshire" calls this cemetery "Lyman Cemetery near Church".

From the forward to Mrs Pickwick's 1950 transcript: It is located at what was at that time the center of the town. Because the land was so rocky, it was abandoned, and a new cemetery started just above the town hall, about 3/4 mile to the north. Some of the bodies were moved at that time. There appear about 25 unmarked graves, but possibly half were removals. At present, 36 stones mark 41 burials.
