THE CEMETERY AT THE GREEN, MIDDLEBOROUGH MA, 25APR 2012

After my visits to the Hillcrest and Congregational Cemeteries on Rte 58 in
Plympton, I drove over to Middleborough to the Cemetery on The Green. It's
located on Rte 105 across the street from the First Congregational Church
and has also been known as the Parish Burial Grounds. The first burial
there was in 1717 and as at Hillcrest, there are cousins from my Barrows,
Benson, and Ellis lines buried there.

Some of my Barrows cousins.

And some Ellis cousins
As in most cemeteries the older graves are at the front and the newer ones at the
rear. But this new monument seems out of place, almost like the black monolith
at the start of the 2001:A Space Odyssey movie:




My favorite modern gravestone
