old New England Burying Ground

"My flesh fhall flumber in the ground 
  Till the last trumpet joyful founds
  Then burst the chains with fweet furprise 
  And in my faviour's image rise."

Benjamin Mead, Esqr.,
Died March 5, 1815
Aged 85 years, 6 months, and 7 days.

An old burying ground in Connecticut can be a delightful place to ponder the mysteries and heritage of New England families. Secluded, quiet, unassuming, and frozen in time, the continued existence of these hallowed graveyards provides testimony to the unsinkable resolve of generations before us not to be forgotten.

It is in this spirit that The Historic Mead Family Burying Grounds Association, Inc., was formed. (click to continue)
