Search Ford Cemetery:

Ford Cemetery is located on the town line between Plainfield and Cummington. There are no surviving markers. The cemetery is located on private land.

Packard in 1950 describes it as "never walled except on the south side, where an uncompleted wall runs towards the town road. The limits are faintly discernable because the land was once a plow field and the surface is much smoother except the plot reserved for burial. 9 marked stones and 20-25 marked w/field stones. The spot is on what is known as West Hill in common use before the division of Plainfield and Cummington after which in Cummington a new ground was opened east of Earl Streeters place. A drawing shows High Steet running north/south and the Plainfield/Cummington town line running east/west. Cemetery is on east side of High Street running abt 38.8 rods north along the road from the town line then 51.6 rods east into the pasture. Size is about 6 or 7 rods square."
Note: High Street is the former name for the portion of West Hill Road in Plainfield

Corbin describes it as at the B. Streeter place. He did not transcribe the cemetery.

It is not listed in MACRIS
