Cemetery notes and/or description:
From "The History of Rehoboth Massachusetts" Publ 1918 by George H Tilton.

"This yard is under the care of the Briggs Corner Cemetery Association, Mrs. J. L. Merry, Secretary.

The cemetery has two parts, the old or free part and the new, which was opened about forty-five years ago. In the old part many of the stones are of blue slate and some of the graves are more than a hundred years old.

Among the oldest are the names of Samuel Macomber, who died in 1771, aged 53; Remember Kent, who died in 1773, aged 28; Jacob Kent, who died in 1780; and Samuel Blackinton, who died in 1803.

Both parts are fairly well kept, but without funds for perpetual care. A good wall separates the yard from the highway. Many of the burials have been of Attlebrough residents, as a large part of Briggs Corner lies across the line and within the limits of that town.

Running parallel with the road is a row of six plain monuments, four of marble and two of granite, and all of a similar type. One of these is to the memory of Rev. Thomas Perry, who died Aug. 29, 1852, aged 70; and Seba Perry, who died April 17, 1881, aged 67. A second is inscribed with the name of Joseph Wetherell, 1800-1882. A third to Samuel Sanford, 1773-1884"
