From Route 102 follow Browns Corner Road to intersection of Stubble Brook Road and Francis H. Horn Drive. Intersection of Francis H. Horn Dr. and Wheatly Road.

This is one of the Rhodie Island Historical Cemeteries found at W. Alton Jones Campus - Univ of Rhode Island. I assume the listing is complete, however reviewing my photos from this Campus is Private Property. For access contact Alton Jones Campus @ URI.

I found at least one addition to the 'posting' found on campus from which I generated this list when I walked the cemetery. The cemetery was in good shape and looks as if it is tended by the URI staff.

I visually walked this cemetery on Sep 15, 2010. Included are names found on WAJ campus posting.

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.
