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.
