Field-Howland Cemetery #91 is located north side of Sherwood Road a few hundred yards east of intersection of Sherwood Rd. & Dog Corners. It is situated a short distance from the highway and is surrounded by a cultivated field. A very old woven wire fence encloses the area. There is a heavy wire gate on the east side between two upright limestone gate posts with pyramid shaped tops. Fence has been broken by fallen trees. Cemetery is about 150' by 100' . Within this is burial plot 30' by 40' surounded by wall of squared limestone blocks , two feet wide. Wall is capped by flat limestone blocks which are fastened together by staple like iron rods, the ends of which are embedded in the stones. There is a small iron gate at the entrance of this plot. All gravestones found are within the enclosure , ground all covered with myrtle. Several large, evidently very old Scotch Pine , White Cedar, Maple and Elm trees. A rank growth of smaller trees , grape vines, briars and weeds make access difficult. Many woodchuck holes. All monuments down except two, one of which is half buried in the earth. - 1962
