The markers from Indian Hollow and Knightville Cemeteries were removed as part of a flood control project that created Knightville Reservoir in 1939-40. A burial permit was issued by the Town Clerk's Office, Huntington, MA for each marker (or each name on the marker). Each permit stub has a transcription of the gravestone. Unless a family member had the remains exhumed and moved, the remains were left in place. Soil from the original grave accompanied the marker and was placed under it at its new location at Norwich Bridge Cemetery.

The markers are at the top of the Norwich Bridge Cemetery hill. Their location is marked with a boulder and plaque, "The graves in this back section were moved from the Knightville and Indian Hollow cemeteries due to the construction of Knightville Dam in 1939. There are 54 unknown graves."

Walter Corbin transcribed the cemetery on 15 May 1937. At that time, he found 62 legible markers.

Indian Hollow Cemetery was located about 1 mile north of what was the center of Knightville. The location cannot be physically accessed.

Note: Marker transcription, relationship links, picture of marker, and any additional information are posted at Norwich Bridge Cemetery. A link to each memorial in Norwich Bridge Cemetery is included.
