This small cemetery is on private property, formerly a working farm, originally owned by the Samuel Perkins family. The cemetery is located on the west side of Blackberry Hill Road, in the field behind the present day Dragonfly Farm. The cemetery itself is located in a grove of trees, enclosed with granite posts and iron rail fencing. This cemetery includes 13 burials from two families: Twombly (5) and Fogg (8). There are four known rows of burials, and graves are numbered left to right.

The cemetery was first described in Wilbur Spencer’s publication entitled “Burial Inscriptions and other data of burials in Berwick, York County, Maine to the year 1922.” Spencer’s original document described a total of 107 cemeteries, the people buried in the cemeteries, and the gravestone engravings. This cemetery was identified as cemetery number 32 in Spencer’s book. In his publication, Spencer listed two Perkins family members (Samuel H Perkins and Sarah ALLEN Perkins) who have since been moved to Evergreen Cemetery at Lot 474 and Highland Ave.

In the 1990s, John and Robert Philbrick reviewed many (maybe all) of the original Spencer cemeteries, and found this cemetery (# 32) still intact. Their findings are described in their document entitled “Berwick Cemeteries” by John and Robert Philbrick.

If you wish to visit the cemetery, you should stop at the farmhouse and ask permission from the present land owners.

Regarding photographs, I suspect that the cemetery is not being maintained by anyone, and I also suspect that the gravestones have fallen into disrepair. Under those circumstances, and because I seem to be the only one concerned with this cemetery and with these burials at this time, you have my permission to clear and/or clean the stones as makes the most sense for photographic purposes, making certain not to damage the stones in the process. The object is to record readable images of the stones for historical purposes. Thank you.
