As to this place, Mrs. Grace Brackett Scott . . . writes . . . between Brackett road (which was the first road laid out through Rye) and the sea, in the salt marsh, is a little piece of higher ground covered with bushes; on parting the bushes we found the rough stones which mark the graves of our ancestor, Anthony Brackett, and fourteen other victims of the same massacre. The fifteen graves entirely cover the little knoll which is entirely surrounded by the salt marsh. . . . Anthony could not have chosen a surer resting place forever to lie undisturbed by the hand of man. Surely no use will ever be made of that spot . . .
. . . . . . . . . .
Note that the last Tuesday in September in 1691 was actually the 29th day of that month . . . hence, that is the date indicated on the individual memorials in this cemetery listing.
