|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.
