Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Church Family Cemetery is the resting place of 330 Shakers. After the Shakers left Enfield in 1923, they asked the new owners, the Missionaries of LaSalette, to remove the individual headstones and replace them with a single stone marked "Shakers." It was felt that one stone expressed the Community's belief in a shared spiritual inheritance in life and death.

The entries here are taken from the cemetery plot plan that recorded the information taken from individual stones before they were removed. The fate of most stones is unknown. A few stones displayed at the museum were used to create a walkway at a home in Enfield and were later donated to the Museum.

Description on display at Enfield Shaker Museum. Additional information taken from The New England historical and genealogical register, Volume 62 By Henry Fitz-Gilbert Waters, New England Historic Genealogical Society.
