Cemetery History

Before the Town of Glastonbury was founded in 1693, the town founders were required by the Colony of Connecticut to provide a church and a minister. The location of the first church was the corner of Main Street and Hubbard Street. The land around this area was set aside to form a Town Green for the use of the residents. Main Street, at this time, was an Indian trail which was being used as a rutted wagon road and Hubbard Street was created to provide access to the Town Green. It normally followed that the land adjacent to the church was designated as a burying ground. This burying ground is now known as the Green Cemetery.

Until October 1897, the burying ground was maintained by the Town of Glastonbury when a corporation of local investors was formed to maintain The Green Cemetery and to collect fees for the perpetual care of lots which would be sold for future burials. The Green Cemetery Association was incorporated on October 29, 1897.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
