Benjamin Stoddard Cemetery: Notes

Benjamin Stoddard cemetery

This is a family cemetery, surrounded by a stone wall and situated in one of the prettiest locations of any of the County?s many burial plots. It is well-maintained, presumably by one of the neighbors.

The Stoddards were early settlers of the part of western Jerusalem called the Green Tract because it was developed by Henry and Orin Green, originally of Berkshire Co., Massachusetts. There were several family plots of this type scattered around the area, but this is the only one that survives more or less intact. The neighborhood was once much more heavily settled than it is now, and even some of the roads have disappeared.
