cut. This house between his and West Bridgewater was that of Samuel Keith, son of Rev. James Keith, and stood where the late Nathan Bassett lived, and on the old Taunton road, as laid out 1668, which came from Mile Brook bridge, in line of North street, to Four Mile brook, sometimes called Tweed brook, crossing the road between the house of Florentius Wilbur and the Ebenezer Gay house, and thence over the high land at Elijah Alden's to Cromwell C. Wilbur's house; thence up the hill, by Barak Wilbur, to Taunton, through the Gushee neighborhood. Said well and house of Joshua Fobes stood on the east side of the road to Titicut, after leaving the Taunton road at Cromwell C. Wilbur's house.
These persons, Alden and Fobes, were probably both buried in this yard, but their graves are unknown.
There is no deed or paper writing known to exist relating to the origin or title of this burial-ground.
