Question:  I have a diary reference to an ancestor buried at the old cemetery on the Providence Road in Mendon, Massachusetts.  Can you identify it from that description?


Answer:  The only cemetery I have listed on the Providence Road in Mendon is Pine Hill Cemetery. Pine Hill dates back to 1757, and NEHGS has two manuscripts of the inscriptions.  You can also find some of the inscriptions in the Vital Records of Mendon, Mass. to the year 1850, under the source G.R. 8.

Mendon has many small Cemeteries. The cemetery closed to the center of town on Providence Rd is Old Cemetery. Here is a link I found that lists some of the people buried there. Please note that they refer to it as Providence St, but it is Providence Rd. Hope this helps.
