Stevens Cemetery
Barnet, Caledonia County, Vermont

Barnet Town Clerk, 802-633-2256

Lat: 44°17'51" N, Lon: 072°02'57"W

Submitted by Wally, Aug 21, 2003 [rriderb@hotmail.com]. Total records = 151.

To reach cemetery from I-91, take the Barnet exit, go north on US Rt 5 less than a quarter of a mile, on left across the road from the Town Clerk Office is the cemetery.

This cemetery was discontinued 1896 the earliest and latest stones being, "1796" & "4/3/1896". Although, the journal of Enos Stevens says, under the date of Apr 13, 1787: "All hands fencing in the burying place which I gave to the inhabitants of Barnet." and under Apr 18: The neighbors came and finished the fence around the burying place."

According to Rev. Goodwillie (son and successor of the town's first settled minister), Daniel Hall's wife was the first person who died in town soon after settlement began in 1770 and is buried here in an unmarked grave. Two descendants of Mayflower passengers are buried here, including Stevens Rider, Barnet's first Town Clerk and Constable.

The stones in the cemetery have recently been cleaned, standing upright, mostly clearly readable in good cross-light at mid-day.

I walked this cemetery in May 30, 2000, doing a personal inspection of all of the gravestones. I also measured the stones and the distances between them. No Sexton's records or map existed for this burying ground. I hope my work has corrected this problem with the transcription below.

"a" following a birthdate, indicates date calculated from deathdate minus age. Some of the supplemental info is from Vital Records and some was not in previous Town Clerk cemetery record.
