|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The new cemetery (named Mount Pleasant in 1846) was dedicated on June 14, 1843 by the Reverend David Damon, pastor of the Congregational Society. Shortly after the dedication, he suffered an attack of apoplexy and died just days later. Ironically, he was the first person interred in the new cemetery he had dedicated.
The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as ARL.801 Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
