The exact location of Carver's Indian Burying Place is unknown today, but it was likely located somewhere near the south shore of Sampson's Pond on the Wampanoag Sonet family's land. Sampson's Pond itself was named after Samuel alias Sampson Sonet.

The location was known to Carver historian Henry S. Griffith in 1913, but he did not identify its location in his 1913 History of Carver.

The burials in this cemetery likely include Samuel and Dorothy Sonet and their descendants, including the Sonet and Sepit families who remained on the Sonet family land on the south side of Sampson's Pond into the 19th century.

No gravestones are known to exist.
