Washington Street Cemetery
Middlesex County, Connecticut

Vine Street, Middletown, CT
This Cemetery was laid out by a committee appointed by the town in Dec. of 1739. About 1830 is was enlarged by an enclosure of a portion of the street on the north side. This cemetery is surrounded by a picket fence on two sides. There are several hundred brownstone markers, and many white marble stones. Many of the brownstones are flaking away, and are leaning forward. Many have no inscriptions.

Considering that this cemetery is directly next to one of the most prestigious and wealthest colleges in the Northeast, Wesleyan University, this cemetery is totally neglected and is in the poorest condition of all the cemeteries in Middletown. [IM]

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.
