CommentThis lot is located 100 ft south of Gorton Avenue, across from Armstrong Avenue at telephone pole #7. It is 50 ft x 55 ft, in good condition, enclosed with iron posts with chains. The historic cemetery sign is in good condition. It contains 32 burials with 13 inscribed stones and 19 fieldstones. It is on the tax assessor’s map, Plat #357, Lot #556. James Arnold visited this lot 1 July 1894 and noted, “a few yards east of the Old Baptist Church, a burial yard in fine order” (Vol. 29, pp. 135-137). Recorded by John Sterling for a book on Warwick cemeteries.
