Total records = 812.
To reach cemetery from I-91, take the Barnet exit, go south on US Rt
5 three miles, take first right upon entering village onto a dirt road,
cemetery is immediately in sight directly ahead, beyond the interstate
Condition: stones recently cleaned, standing upright, mostly clearly
readable in good cross-light at mid-day. History: (paraphrased from
the History of Barnet) The earlier burials were in an enclosure roughly
behind the (now closed) village grade school.
When the railroad was built, a deep cutting was made just back of this
enclosure, which prevented any expansion. Land was bought just west
of where Interstate Highway 91 would later be built and most of the
bodies were moved there during the early years of the Civil War. There
still remain the dust of a number of persons whose names and locations
are not known.
Until 2002, the Town's (and Sexton's) records of burials at the new
location contained less than 30% of the burials recorded on gravestones,
this transcription project has corrected the omissions to the extent
permitted by existent gravestones and burial records.
An a following a BirthDate indicates the date was calculated from
DateDied minus age. F.L.T. indicates Rebekahs/Odd Fellows membership
flag holder. Row # Stone #s refer to location numbers on the cemetery
map, lower-case letters after Stone # indicate stone location within
the lot, as read left to right (to assist in proving relationships),
omitted letters are empty plots.
Transcription compilation completed: Jul 30, 2002. Compiled by personal
inspection of gravestones, supplemented by data from the public vital
record in the notes column. An outdated plot map previously existed,
this has been brought current from cemetery records and on-the-ground
measurements. Sexton's records were consulted and in the few instances
where additional data was found, this has been annotated in the notes.
Two Gravestone remnants from the previous location of this cemetery
are also listed, making this the most complete listing for this village's
dead that can be compiled today.
