 Nemasket Hill Cemetery, Middleboro, Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States


Notes:
It was the only burial ground for more than 2 generations, but there is no documentation of those early burials. The oldest headstone here (and in the town of Middleborough) is that of Elizabeth Vaughan.

The Massachusetts Historical Commission refers to this cemetery in MACRIS as MID815.

This burial site is referenced to in the book "Old Cemeteries of Southeastern Massachusetts" by Charles M Thatcher as "Nemasket Hill Cemetery" and "Records of Hill Cemetery between 1840 and 1850".

This burial site is referenced to in the book "The Mayflower Descendant 1620-1920" published by the "Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants" in both the January 1913 and April 1913 editions.
