According to historian John Frost, the Old Fields cemetery of South Berwick originated as Thomas and Patience Spencer's burial plot. Frost believes that two of the three old plots near the woods on the riverbank, in what now appears to be an unmarked grave, hold the remains of Thomas and Patience (Chadbourne) Spencer and other early settlers.
