CommentThis cemetery is located 200 feet west of Great Road opposite Lime Rock Baptist Church. Transcribed by Ira B Peck (1805-1888) who listed its location as "From the burying ground near the Lime Rock Village so called in Smithfield, RI" (NEHGS Mss C1807a-b) Transcribed by James N Arnold April 21, 1895, (Vol 25, 397-404). He described lot as follows: "In the Col Whipple yard, Limerock, protected by granite posts and iron rails, yard in fine order." Additional burials were recorded by Grace G Tillinghast Sep 3, 1932 (Vol 25, page 404) Surveyed by Dr Frank Calef who recorded in his transcript as Lot 30 and lists it on pages 109-117. He described its location as Molasses Hill, Limerock. Lot was also recorded by Charles & Martha Benns who assigned it #239. It can be found in Volume II, pages 238-239 of their work. Ethel M White also transcribed lot during the 1930's. Transcribed by Roger Beaudry on April 15, 1995. Lot contains some of the oldest and most beautiful stones in the town of Lincoln. Neighbors apparently don't think much of the lot. It is the neighborhood dump filled with brush, metal, tires, old doors and windows and all other sorts of refuse. Transcribed by Ron Farrar who described it as follows: "Great Rd across from Simon Sayles Road"
