From HASKELL'S HISTORICAL GUIDE BOOK OF SOMERVILLE, MA

"The property [for Milk Row Cemetery] belonged to Samuel Tufts, and was transferred by deed in 1804 to Timothy Tufts, esq., Nathaniel Hawkins, esq., Samuel Kent, Samuel Shed, John Stone, and their associates, for one dollar and other considerations.
The conditions provided that the land be used only as a burying place and that it be always fenced without cost to Mr. Tufts or his heirs. The deed was record at the Middlesex Registry of Deeds, May 31, 1808."

NOTE: It is thought that the death year is incorrect, and that evidence exists that Mr. Samuel Tufts lived beyond 1805.
