OLD BURIAL GROUND

Boylston, MA


Located at the intersection of Main and School Street
at (GPS coordinates 42.35100, -71.73568)


HISTORY:
One of the first acts after the incorporation of what is now Boylston into the North Precinct of Shrewsbury, was to acquire from Lieutenant Eleazar Taylor, two acres of land which the inhabitiants dedicated to the use of a Meeting House and a Burial Ground. The Burial Ground was laid out in 1742 and the first burial took place April 14, 1745 and was that of Garner Maynard, son of Elisha and Hulda Maynard - he was 11 months, 11 days old.
Many of Boylston's most important historical figures are buried here including Capt. Robert Andrews, commander of the town's Minutemen in 1775; Dr. Samuel Brigham, Paymaster on the staff of General George Washington; Henry Keyes, the town's only veteran of the French and Indian War; Rev. Ebenezer Morse, the first minister and a prominent Tory during the Revolution; and many graves of men who served in the War of Independence.
By the 1830's the burial ground was becoming crowded and a new site was purchased and the Pine Grove Cemetery was established in 1837. Only occasional burials took place after this in the Old Burial Grounds.

Beneath this stone rests the remians of Reverend Ebenezer Morse, A.M., who upwards of fifty years exercized the functions of a Christian minister in this place. Endowed by the Father of Lights with a strong and capacious mind, he richly stored it by seeking and intermeddling with all wisdon. As a advisor, he was learned; as a physician, eminent; as a philosopher, deep, extensive and correct in his views. As a politician, of piercing insight of individual character. Shrewd in reply, able in controversy, abounding with narrative, the passion of helpless merit, and fulfulling with exactness the duties of husband, teacher and friend, he died Janurary 3, 1802, aged 84. The stone also preserves the memory of Mrs. Persis Morse, the amiable and virtuous consort of the Rev. E. Morse. She died May 6, 1786, aged 61 years, having been united in marriage 33 years. From this union sprang eleven children.
