Gravestone Transcriptions
from
Sturtevant Cemetery (1728)
in
Halifax, Massachusetts

Transcribed by Anna N. Sturtevant
Summer, 1997

 

Introduction

 

     Between 1910 and 1912 Mayflower Descendant published transcriptions, made in 1906, of the pre-1851 gravestones in the Sturtevant Cemerty in Halifax (referred to there as the Monponsett Lake Cemetery). Those transcriptions are posted elsewhere on this site. In 1997 Anna Sturtevant prepared a new set of transcriptions of all existing gravestones. She also prepared a plan of the cemetery and illustrations of all of the gravestones with an indexing system to aid in locating specific graves. In this posting of Anna's work I have included all of her transcriptions and her plan of the cemetery. I have converted her illustrations of the gravestones into electronic form to provide a virtual cemetery.

     Until now these transcriptions have been available to researchers only by consulting Anna's manuscript at the Holmes Public Library in Halifax or by corresponding with Anna. I would like to thank her for making them available on this site so that a wider audience may benefit from her hard work.

     Anna's text includes some notes providing information that is not found on the gravestones. I have added notes [in square brackets and in red] providing some additional information. I have also re-arranged the contents of the manuscript as noted on the page describing the Virtual Cemetery.
