Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery contains 50 stones that are listed here as "Marker ### Unknown". These listings were not added in error. The stones are old, large, and worn. They can not be ignored in any credible listing of the cemetery. Burials here are arranged by family, and this might lead to establishing identities. The list of names of those unknowns has dwindled as more family records have been brought forward. It is hoped that the photos of these stones will help lead to the identity of the interred. Research is ongoing.

This cemetery was founded in 1753. It is owned by the Town of Bridgewater.
