The Mill Hill Burying Ground Part I Part II Part IV Part V
  Part III      



Transcribed and edited by Madeleine Eckert on December 1, 2006

This listing of those buried in the Mill Hill Burying Ground was recorded in 1924.  Therefore, only those headstones that were visible and readable were recorded. Also, in the Colonial Period, less than a third of burials were marked with an inscribed headstone. Often, a simple rock was used. Some errors may have occurred when the compiler initially copied the information, or from typographical errors created when transcribing the original printed or microfilmed documentation into the present format. If the person you are looking for is not on this list, it does not mean that they are not buried at Mill Hill. If you have information that someone is buried at Mill Hill but is not on our list, please let us know at

TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE 1:  Approximately 180-185 Graveyard Records
TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE 2:  Names have been transcribed exactly as spelled in the original document. 
TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE 3:  Spelled out each last name in full, the word “died” for d., “wife” for w., “son” for s., “daughter” for dau., etc.
