         HISTORICAL CEMETERY #: PW001     MINERAL SPRINGS CEMETERY                PAWTUCKET RI



           Location: 15 ft north of MINERAL SPRING AVE at TEL pole # 4     



            NOTE: data from Ethel White's notes                                                                                 



            Grace G Tillinghast recorded this cemetery on July 12, 1932. Her transcription can be 



            found in Arnold's records, Volume 22 pages 1-107. Her description of cemetery is as 



            follows: "There are many old graves in this cemetery, many stones broken or flat 



            on the ground; many shattered or plastered over with a granular substance, making 



            difficult to interpret or read. It was necessary to get a pick and pry up some of the 



            stones, to read. 



                The seven tombs at eastern side are a unique feature and some are inscribed on door 



            or above. Every tomb door was open and one flat on the ground. Debris piled in front of 



            first one on the avenue.    



                An ornamental iron fence near is broken and out of place."                                                



            She also has a small transcription in Volume 15 (Lincoln, RI) on page 136.                                    



            The date of transcription is November 22, 1930, and it simply says "Mineral Spring 



            Cemetery, all this in one lot."  I have put the letters "GGT" in the lot 



            section to help distinguish this transcription. I am making the assumption that they 



            belong in this cemetery. 



            Cemetery was also transcribed by Charles P & Martha A Benns in the 1930's. Their 



            transcription consisted of only 13 names and can be found in Vol IV, page 75 and Vol V, 



            page 71. They recorded cemetery as #739          



            This cemetery has been recorded but not checked.

            Very little of this cemetery has been completed. There are many late 19th century Irish 



            stones with information on where in Ireland the people came from. We are looking for a 



            volunteer to record these.

            Work has just started on this cemetery. We could not locate an early transcript so 



            there is very little data so far, probably less than 5%.
