CommentThis cemetery is located 750 feet west of Ministerial Road at telephone pole # 5189, just north of the Boy Scout camp. It is 800 feet east of Warden Pond. To get to it go eight hundred feet west on the road into the Boy Scout camp to the first building. Then go north on the trail for five hundred feet to the cemetery. It is one hundred feet south of the first house north of the camp. The cemetery is 50 feet x 35 feet, in good condition, enclosed with a stone wall, and the historical cemetery sign is in good condition. There are nineteen burials with thirteen inscribed stones and six fieldstones. James N. Arnold visited this lot 6 Oct 1880, his #130, “on land of Lorenzo A. Knowles north of his house in corner of lot, partly protected a burial yard of his family.” Recorded by John Sterling and James Wheaton for a 2004 book on South Kingstown cemeteries.
