Old Durham Cemetery
Durham, Middlesex County, Connecticut

Main St & Old Cemetery Rd, Rt 17, Durham CT
Durham was settled in 1698. It's original name was Coginchaug. In 1704 it was changed to Durham, from the town of that name in the north of England. In 1708 Durham was incorporated as a town. This burial ground was given by the proprietors soon after the settlement of the town. The oldest gravestone in this cemetery is that of Jonathan Clemment, who died Mar 8, 1712. This cemetery has hundreds of brownstone markers, and many white marble stones. It is on a steep hill overlooking Main St. [IM]
