Question:  I find record that an ancetor was a pauper when he died in Hudson, Massachusetts in 1838.  I am trying to locate the almshouse and the cemetery associated with it. 


Answer:  The Pauper's Burying Ground in Hudson dates back to 1822.  The site is located at 565 Main Street in Hudson.  In 1993 a report was published by the Massachusetts Historical Commission on the investigations to the location of the cemetery.  At NEHGS we have this book - Edward L. Bell, Historical archaeology at the Hudson Poor Farm Cemetery (Boston: Mass. Historical Commission, 1993) call number F74/H82/B45/1993.
