SOUTH MIDDLEBORO CEMETERY, MIDDLEBORO, MA. 11JUN 2012 PT2

The South Middleboro Cemetery is located on the grounds of the South
Middleborough United Methodist church in Middleborough, Ma. The two
different spellings come from the New England custom of dropping the old
fashioned spelling for a shorter version of the name. There are a number
of towns in Massachusetts that may be spelled officially with the "borough"
but are frequently spelled with the "boro" unofficially. 

Besides the shorter version fits better on many signs
