This portion set apart in 1636. Enlarged in 1638. It was the only burial place for nearly a century. Here were buried Allin Adams Belcher Dexter and Haven ministers of the church and Alleyne Lusher Dwight and Fisher with other founders of the town.
I have attempted to contact the Find a Grave contributor and asked if the info is from a gravestone transcription or other source. I will follow up if and when he responds.
