Notes on this burial ground from Harris, 1880, p. 25-27.
"On land belonging to the heirs of the late Isaac Hall, beside public road a short distance northeast of his house is an ancient burial ground of the Brown family.
In this lot is buried Beriah Brown, the first settler of this tract. His grave is in the southwest corner, and is a square tomb raised and covered with flat stones with no inscription. His descendents are buried in a row parallel [sic] with his running north. He came from England and settled here the latter part of the 17th century. He perfected his title May 27, 1709, after R.I. and Conn. had settled their dispute in regard to territory. Was born in England about 1640 (lived in Rowley, Mass.) emigrated here about 1670, died about the time of the great snowstorm of Feb. 20, 1717."
