NOTE:

This listing of those buried in the Pine Island Burying Ground was recorded in 1933.  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 Pine Island.  If you have information that someone is buried at Pine Island but is not on our list, please let us know at info@norwalkhistoricalsociety.org
