     Location: 50 ft south of KINGSTON RD at TEL pole # 466  

      2000 burials

      NOTE: This is the newest cemetery in South Kingstown started in 1931.

      The information for this cemetery comes from the cemetery records

      and not from the gravestones. We are indebted to _____, the owner

      of the cemetery, for sharing the records. The records for this

      cemetery document the race of some of the American Indian, Black

      and Asian interments. This information being very important to

      genealogists has been retained in this database. The small "b"

      after some of the death years indicates it is the burial and not

      the death date. Many of the records do not contain the age. A few

      had death dates that were obviously typographical errors like

      2009 and 2020 which have not happened yet in 2003. These have

      been deleted and a few others have been repaired.

      cemetery for maintenance Craig Anthony invited us to see the

      Potter tomb and record the inscriptions. On entering the tomb

      there is a chamber with nine crypts on the wall directly in

      front. Seven of the crypts are used and sealed with a 25 inch by

      35 inch slate stone inscribed with names and dates. The two

      unused slates are leaning against the chamber wall for future

      use. The damp nature of the tomb is causing the slate stones to

      disintegrate. There are small stalactites coming down from the

      ceiling and the very beginnings of stalagmites starting to form

      on the floor below them.

          The crypts are in three rows of three. The top row is

      numbered 1,2,3; the center row is numbered 4,5,6; and the bottom

      row is numbered 7,8,9. Crypts number 3 and 4 are not used and

      number 6 has a mother and son entombed.

      in size by the driveway. James Arnold did not record this lot in

      1880 so we don't have any earlier knowledge of it.

      Bill Sweet's notes indicate that Major Ebenezer Brenton who died

      in South Kingstown in 1766 left this land to his daughter Ann and

      her husband Martin Howard Jr. Ebenezer Brenton was the grandson

      of Gov. William Brenton. This and the fact that one crude

      NOTE: Enter the driveway to house #164 Middlebridge Road and proceed

      Colletta's land. The site was heavily excavated in 1917 but in

      2003 it is boggy and is heavily overgrown with thick brush, briars, and vines.

      Seven fieldstone marked graves northeast of the site of the Bull

      Block House on a knoll. Said to be the graves of settlers killed

      in the block house by Indians during King Phillips War in 1675.

      This property was the site of an archealogical dig in 1917 and is

      now the property of the RI Historical Society.

      In 1663 Jireh Bull purchased a 20 acre house lot stretching up

      the hill from the river which formed the eastern boundary. In

      1668 he purchased 500 acres from the Pettaquamscutt purchasers.

      Captain Waite Winthrop writing to his father, Governor John

      Winthrop of Connecticut, on July 9, 1675 describes the property

      as "... large stone house with a good ston wall yard before it

      which is a kind of small fortyfycation to it." During King

      Phillip's War the Indians attacked and burned the house and

      killed fifteen of the seventeen inhabitants. Jireh Bull was not

      killed in the massacre but came back to live on the property

      after the war. It is not clear whether the cemetery contains the

      remains of these fifteen people or is simply the family burial

      ground for the Bull family.

      This cemetery is mentioned in a South Kingstown land deed dated 4

      January 1872 (bk 23, pg 639) for land being transferred from Job

      Briggs to Charles H. Shelton of Providence. The deed reads in part:

          ... A tract of land situated in South Kingstown containing 26

      acres be the same more or less bounded on the north by William

      Watson. On the east by the heirs of Stephen C. Fiske, deceased,

      and John H. Braman. On the south by the highway [Curtis Corner

      said tract of land as long as the same may be occupied as and for

      a burying ground...I, the said Job Briggs, my heirs, executors

      and administrators to keep the fence in proper repair around said burying grounds....

      The same burial ground reservation is repeated 1 Jan 1881 (bk 27,

      pg 524) when Charles H. Shelton sells the land to Julia M. Peckham.

      On the property at 109 Curtis Corner Road at the head of Asa

      Pond. The house on this property in 2002 was built on the old
