            In memory of William and Elizabeth Reynolds, their ancestors and descendants. Erected by 


            Thomas A. Reynolds, 1904."

            12 burials 


            30  ft x 35   ft in very poor condition; sign ???


            NOTE: Gilbert Stuart Rd, in field behind #495, a large old farmhouse, the William Pierce 


            farm. Burial yard lies 500' down a long driveway at the rear of the house. Clump of cedars 


            in field on left marks lot. It is on a mound, some brush, many large animal holes, sign 


            standing.  Harris visited here on 5 April 1880, at that time on land of Peleg F. Pierce, 


            west of his house and near wood, an ancient Allen burial yard, unprotected.  At that time 


            he was able to count 18 fieldstones, 3 rudely marked.  Burgess, in the 1930's, has this 


            note: On a knoll in a meadow, a dozen or more graves, all fieldstones, one of which bears 


            the date 1745. Norman Isham told Burgess this place was the home of an Allen, who settled 


            here after a quarrel at the homestead.  Although he saw no marks in it, Walter's daughter 


            showed him what she said was another graveyard a few feet north of the first. It was probably 


            for slaves.  1990: unable to do adequate survey due to animal dens.

            ancient Reynolds lot which contains only fieldstone graves sunken deeply into the earth could 


            be that of the James Reynolds family.  James Reynolds, son of James and Deborah Reynolds, and

            Greene, and settled at Sand Hill.  His second wife was Joanna...  The1978 survey found 11    


            fieldstone markers, three with footstones.  There was also a granite base without headstone.

            beside public road a short distance northeast of his house is an ancient burial ground of the 


            Brown family.  From notes we learn.  In this lot is buried Beriah Brown, the first settler of

            flat stones with no inscription. His descendents are buried in a row parallel [sic] with his 


            running north. He came from England and settled here the latter part of the 17th century. He 


            perfected his title May 27, 1709, after R.I. and Conn. had settled their dispute in regard to 


            territory.  Was born in England about 1640, emigrated here about 1670, died about the time of the 


            great snowstorm of Feb..20,1717."  Harris appears to have gained access to a family bible or      


            some other unknown source, as he identifies several unmarked fieldstone.

            These lots difficult to find.  All are fieldstones, some according to Harris were marked with 


            initials and dates. Two were marked with full names.  With the help of the present owner, many 


            fieldstones graves were found, but only one with markings.  All graves face east. Harris 


            enumerated these the SE graveyard on 31 July 1883, most with initials.  SW lot is nearer to 


            house, lying on an eastward on an eastward facing slope:  Harris counted 17 graves in four lines 


            facing east.  Most can be seen today.  Owner of the farm said that when he came in 1955, there 


            had been a veteran's flag there. Burgess found 10 graves.  Burgess said this suggested this might 


            be a Tourgee Lot. SW lot about 20' south of 2nd lot.  Harris and Burgess found six fieldstone

            overgrown with oak [?] is a cemetery of the Burlingame family.  Lot unprotected graves marked 


            with rude stones only. We counted 7 large and 3 small graves and think the plow has destroyed

            "Only fieldstones, but Mr. Vose told me it was a Burlingame Lot."  In January 1990, 


            10 fieldstone graves found.

            south of STONY LANE


            21 burials with 3    inscriptions 


            NOTE: According to a long time resident who lives nearby, this graveyard was buried under 


            earth about 1917.  It lies about 40 feet south of Stony Lane in the center of a soccer field.  


            Harris described it on 24 July 1882, as lying on the land of Mr. Rathbun north of his house.  


            Harris notes what would seem to be two other burial lots, although his does not number them as 


            separate yards.  Presumably their fate was similar to the Jacoy lot. "Outside yard west end, 


            9 graves all with rude stones."  "North of here a space 5 graves which we are told were 


            blacks names to us unknown." (Research indicates that this was the burial ground of a black 


            family named Brown living in the area.)

            NOTE: If still in existence, is on grounds of Quidnessett Country Club or Scalabrini Villa.  


            Harris located it in 1883 on the land of Crawford Allen a short distance northwest from the 


            above and beside a creek on side hill" (above cemetery refers to NK367.)  He saw 4 stones 


            and thought more may have been interred there.  He says tradition calls them Indians, which he 


            much doubts, or slaves.  Perhaps early settlers, Goulds, Fowlers or Carrs.

            NOTE: Harris located this in 1883: "on plain east of the house belonging to the late 


            Joseph W. Allen beside fence." Old maps show Allen's house on the east side of Fletcher Rd. 


            Which would place the burial yard between it and Allen's Harbor near the present quail Rd.  More 


            research is needed to determine the site of this house.  There were according to Harris, 1 row of 


            3 graves may have been more; a second row of 4 or 5 graves.
