31 burials with inscriptions from 1771 to 1892
40ft x 50ft NOTE: When last visited [1990s] lot was in poor condition; "old granite posts are toppled, fence vanished. A stone wall remains on the east. Trees have toppled onto stones, bushes and forest litter have hidden others." Mrs. Lawrence notes that this yard had been maintained in immaculate condition until the 1938 hurricane devastated it. Harris also commented on its excellent repair.
The Spencer and Wheelock burals are also listed at The Glenwood Cemetery [EG026] in East Greenwich. They may have been moved there after the 1938 hurricane.
This cemetery has been recorded and checked.
