This is technically considered a 'lost' cemetery.

According to Quaker records, persons listed in this cemetery are buried in Jamestown (synonymous with Conanicut Island). The exact locations of *some* burials (all those listed as interments here) are unknown (see below).

It is quite possible that these interments were absorbed into the present day Friends Cemetery (Jamestown Lot #6). This is supported by the fact that gravestones for many of those from the same Quaker list for the island are found here. Some individuals have gravestones in other towns; whether these are their actual burial sites or just cenotaphs is uncertain at this time.

The following are NOT listed in this Find-a-Grave cemetery, since they have known memorials in other locations:
GREENE, DAVID - found in Jamestown Lot #6
SLOCUM, EBENEZER - found in Jamestown Lot #6
SLOCUM, MARY - found in Jamestown Lot #6
WEEDEN, ANNA CHASE - found in Lincoln Lot #26 (she died near there)
WEEDEN, JOB - found in Jamestown Lot #6
WEEDEN, JOHN - found in Jamestown Lot #6
WILBOUR, MARY - same person as Mary W. Morey (recorded twice)
