From Rte. I-93, take exit 42 Dascomb Rd. Follow Dascomb Rd. towards Tewksbury for 2 mile. Dascomb Rd. becomes East St. Follow East St. for 2.4 miles. You will see Tewksbury Cemetery on the right. Old Burial Grounds will be on the left just past Lee St., across East St. from Tewksbury Cemetery.

This cemetery is close to the center of Tewksbury. It is also under the control of Tewksbury Cemetery Commission. Condition is fairly good. Grounds are kept and mowed.

The oldest burial I found was Hannah Spaulding, infant dau of Rev. Sampson & Mrs. Mehetabel Spaulding, 18 Jan 1744. The latest burial appears to be 31 Mar 1829, Mrs. Rebeca/Rebekah Mace. They are currently building new condos next to and around this cemetery, but it is well protected with stone walls.

This contains all visible and legible stones, which I read on Aug 29, 2004 when I walked the cemetery.

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.
