Cemetery notes and/or description:
This is a privately-owned cemetery. This is a Quaker cemetery, in 1850 a branch of Quakers separated from the larger group. Soon afterwards, they purchased land for their meetinghouse and then for this cemetery. In 1852, Quakers decreed that simple stones could be placed over Quaker graves, and very few graves follow that older tradition of "no stones".

The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as DAR807.

This burial place is referenced to in the book "Burials and Burial Places in the town of Dartmouth Massachusetts" by Judith Navas Lund as "Chapter 807 - Friends Burial Ground".
