Jonathan's grave is not marked with a headstone. In his book, "Epitaphs in Old Bridgewater", Williams Latham wrote:
"The adult persons living and dying in this part of old Bridgewater previous to 1703, and probably buried in this yard, so far as is known, were N. Byram, 1688, and his wife, Robert Latham and wife, 1685-1688; Jonathan Cary, of Beaver, 1695; Experience Mitchell, of Elmwood, 1689; Mercy Harris, wife of Issac Harris, about 1682. No other public place of burial is known to have been used; and we find a very few private burying-grounds in the early settlement of the town, here, or elsewhere, in old Bridgewater."
