|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Buffum Cemetery is located on Buffum Road in Uxbridge about equidistant between 100 Buffum Road and 115 Buffum Road and just a few hundred feet southeast of the town line between Uxbridge and Douglas.
The cemetery is designated as GR 25 in the Vital Records of Uxbridge, Massachusetts through the year 1849. This same cemetery is also designated as GR 5 in the Vital Records of Douglas, Massachusetts through the year 1849.
This was the Buffum family cemetery. The family home, which is no longer standing, was adjacent to the cemetery. The cemetery is rectangular in shape and is bounded by a stone wall on all sides with a small iron gate in the front. There is a tall granite obelisk with the names Buffum and Slocum on two of the sides. This appears to be a later addition as some of the names listed on this monument also have individual markers.
According to the Uxbridge Historic Cemetery Committee, the cemetery is cared for by the Buffum Family Association and they have placed a stone bench in the southeast corner of the cemetery. It is designated as cemetery #25 by the Uxbridge Historic Cemetery Committee.
