South Cemetery

on 5/25/2012

The South Cemetery, formerly known as the Hoppin’ River Cemetery, is located on the north side of Washington Street (Route 16) across from the intersection of Hopping Brook Road and adjacent to Weston Pond in Holliston, MA.

The attached Name Index and Layout for the South Cemetery were prepared in August 2010.  The Layout reflects the locations of the stones as of August 2010.

The Name Index is sorted first by last name, then by first name and then by middle name or middle initial.  Several stones were inscribed with initials only.  These were entered in the last name column of the Name Index.  In a few cases, a number appears with the initials on a stone, such as “No. I” appearing over “A.P.” on a stone.  The initials were entered in the last name column and the number was entered next to it in the first name column of the Name Index.  Some stones were inscribed with just a first name.  These appear at the end of the Name Index.  The Layout is laid out facing north (north at the top, south at the bottom).

EXAMPLE:  Open the Index,  look for PIERCE, John H..  The location code is D26.  Open the layout spreadsheet, go across the top to column D, scroll down the rows to row 26.  This is John's relative location in the cemetery.  He is on the left side and approximately 1/2 of the way from the back. 

FOR SMARTPHONE USERS: We have condensed the information into a smaller file which is viewable from a small screen device.  We have divided the cemetery up into a 5x5 grid.  Locations are like on a map.  The letters are left/right, the numbers are back/front.  You are starting at the left back corner (A1).
