The vast majority of the Vose family (Vose, Berry, Thompson) inscriptions indexed to this location appear to have been duplicated or moved to the River Bend Cemetery. Only those not appearing on the River Bend list are recorded here.
*This number appears to be based on a survey recorded done by Frederic Denison 1867-8:
"Vose Ground; This is on the recent Vose farm, now the Town Farm southeast from the farm house about one fourth of a mile and on the west margin of Burden's Pond. The enclosing fence has nearly disappeared. Here are scores of old graves great and small that have only little rough unlettered head & foot stones. Connected to this ground is a little yard now enclosed by rails where rest a family of Halls. The small gravestones are of uncut granite but on them we find the following letters." [Denison identifies 6 individuals]
