The cemetery is on the east side of Chestnut Tree Road just south of the Y in the road at Church Hill, and north of the Cupola Community.
On land which was donated by Vincent Trego and his wife, Saint Mark Episcopal Church and cemetery were established in 1835. The original land grant was about an an acre. A small church was constructed with the remaining land used for the cemetery.
The cemetery has expanded to approximately 4 acres today. Deeds and burials are available to members of Saint Mark Episcopal Church, and their family. There are burials from every war from the Civil War through Vietnam. Special care is taken to make certain all known veterans grave sites are honored with a marker and flag. The large flag pole erected in 2002 is dedicated to all of the service men and women who sacrificed for our freedom.
I have transcribed the burials from the sexton's record book from 1835 - 2002. Recent burials are not on the list. I have photos of some of the tombstones.
