The Old Burial Ground is located in Kingston, Ma., the town just north of Plymouth. It's located
behind the First Congregationalist Church on Route 106 and has some very interesting headstones.
Some of them have quite a bit of information about the people buried there. Here's one for a gentleman named Uriah Bartlett:
The stone reads:
In Memory of
Born July 23, 1789,
Died August 2, 1883,
in his 95th year.
He served in the War of 1812
and was a representative in the
General Court in 1813 and 1815.
As a boy he had talked with the
venerable Ebenezer Cobb of this
town who was born in 1694 and
died in 1801, and who in his own
boyhood had known Peregrine White
who was born on the MAYFLOWER
in 1620 and died in 1704.
"Thou shall go to thy fathers in
peace, thou shall be buried in a
grand old age." Genesis XV., 15.
It's amazing to think that a man who died in 1883 had spoken with a man who had known
Mayflower baby Peregrine White!
