The historical significance of the graves can tell a large part of life in the early settlements of America. The first burial in this cemetery was in 1837, wife of Solomon Curtis and one of the first settlers in 1806, Abigail Curtis. Other burials include 3 American Revolution soldiers, 19 Veterans of the War of 1812 and many soldiers from the Civil War. The Searle and Burlingame Families are buried here, who had many ties to the Underground Railroad. Also, there is a monument for Theophilus Howard whose father was part of the Boston Tea Party, being dressed up as an Indian and dumped tea in the Boston Harbor.
