Cemetery Books
Submitted by Rodney Burdick (rodneyburdick@hotmail.com)

Here are some sources for cemeteries that contain Burdick graves:

1. Hopkinton, Rhode Island Historical Cemeteries, by Gayle E. Waite and Lorraine Tarket Arruda. This book is a great source for genealogical information on Burdicks. Of special interest to me is Oak Grove Cemetery (Historical Cemetery #18) located in Ashaway, Rhode Island on Cemetery Lane, and First Hopkinton Cemetery (Historical Cemetery #22) located on Chase Hill Road near the river. These two cemeteries contain the graves of many of my family.

2. River Bend Cemetery (Westerly Historical Cemetery #8), by Dwight C. Brown, Jr. and his wife. This is another final resting place for many of my family members. This book, both Vol. 1 & 2 are out of print. Last year when I was in Westerly I contacted Dwight and he agreed to sell me a copy of Vol. 1, but was out of Vol. 2. When I return to Westerly next Spring I will try to secure a copy of Vol. 2 from him.

3. Exeter, Rhode Island Historical Cemeteries, by John E. Sterling and James E. Good. This volume has many Burdicks.

4. Coventry, Rhode Island Historical Cemeteries, by Dr. Bill Eddleman and John E. Sterling. Another source for Burdick graves.

5. Warwick, Rhode Island Historical Cemeteries, by John E. Sterling. More Burdicks buried here.

6. North Burial Ground, Providence, Rhode Island, by John E. Sterling. This Cemetery has only a single Burdick listing, Alice Tower (Percival) Burdick, 1834-1866). I mention this volume to honor the work that John Sterling has done on the Cemeteries of Rhose Island.

7. East Greenwich, Rhode Island Historical Cemetery Inscriptions, by Bruce Campbell MacGunnigle. This book isn't as easy to read as the others but it has Burdick information.

8. Elm Grove Inscriptions, by Althea H. McAleer. This is another source for Burdick data. Althea has done a great job in providing this data from the largest Cemetery in North Kingstown.

You can also add to your list the Mesa, Arizona, City Cemetery where my mother and father are buried. My mother died 19 October 2004 just 5 weeks short of her 92nd birthday.

Maplewood Cemetery, Alfred Station, NY, Route 244
Submitted by David Edwards (EDAV57PC@webtv.net)

The cemetery was first a burial ground for the Russell Burdick family. The first graves date to the 1830`s. In 1906 the Maplewood Cemetery Association was formed. Russell Burdick was my great grandfather. The following list was sent to my mother in 1973 from a resident of Alfred Station, NY. It is a very small cemetery. As far as we know, this is probably a complete list:

HAROLD EDWARDS Sept 27, 1889, age 5 mos. (He was my father`s brother)
FRANK BEYEA 1842-1916
FRANCIS BURDICK Feb 5 1848-May 8 1865

Southeast Hollow Burial Ground, Berlin, NY
Submitted by John Crandall (JCran1217@aol.com)

Following is an exerpt from some work I'm doing on the Crandalls and related families that may be of interest to Burdicks. I visited the Southeast Hollow burial ground years ago (maybe 10). The stones were mostly a black shale or slate material, none were standing.

ELIZABETH CRANDALL - Stephen's daughter Elizabeth was born in Hopkinton, R.I., on May 8, 1777. She married (at the age of 15 or so) Wilbur Burdick around 1792 (their first child was born on July 20, 1793.) Wilbur was born in Hopkinton (probably) on January 24, 1770. His father, Zaccheus, born in Westerly on February 28, 1734, was the grandson of the Samuel Burdick mentioned above in the Robert Burdick line. Zaccheus joined the Hopkinton Sabbatarian Church on July 6, 1771. From August 21 to November 30, 1777, he served as a private in Capt. E. Chapin's company of Col. Ruggles Woodbribge Regiment under Gen. Gates northern Department. In 1779, he and his family moved to Berlin, NY where he was a founder of the Sabbatarian Church there. Wilbur was then nine years old. He later joined the Sabbatarian Church in Berlin and was a successful business man. Three of his daughters married three brothers of the Hull family in Berlin.

The last of Wilbur and Elizabeth's seven children, Mary Ann, was born in 1815 and married Leonard R. Saunders. Their daughter, Ann Eliza, married David Calvin Crandall. Leonard was a descendant of Tobias Saunders. Elizabeth and Wilbur are buried in a small cemetery, now abandoned and completely overgrown with brush and trees, that is several hundred feet behind and to the left of a house owned by the Jewett family on the east side of Southeast Hollow Road.

Coventry, Cemetery description information
A book is now available for Coventry. This book is the product of four years of research gathering all early cemetery transcripts and visiting each cemetery to check existing data and add new records. 68 previously unregistered cemeteries were found and recorded for this book. It presents 18,325 gravestone inscriptions in 193 historical cemeteries with 34 ancestor gravestone photographs. There is a regular index of names and a separate maiden name index. All of the crudely inscribed fieldstones that mark the graves of the earliest settlers have been documented and sketches of each one are included in the book. Research has been done in the town probate records to identify many of these stones that aften have nothing more than initials and death date. Dozens of previously unknown gravesites have been identified in this way.

West Greenwich
The core of this database is the transcript of Blance Albro done in the 1970s. West Greenwich is estimated to have a total of 150 cemeteries. Of these, 145 have been registered to date. Prior to 1990, there were only 50 registered. Of the estimated 1,700 marked graves, 1,694 have been entered into the database. West Greenwich is 99% complete.

West Warwick
When the James Arnold visited the cemeteries of West Warwick, the town was still a part of Warwick and its records contained in his transcriptions of Warwick. By visiting each lot, the records have been sorted and entered into the proper town. About 10 of the cemeteries found by Arnold to be in the area that is now West Warwick have not yet been located. In 1990 there were 36 registered cemeteries in West Warwick. Today, there are 49 of an estimated 55. Of the 18,000 estimated marked graves, 16,674 have been entered into the database. Currenly, some of the larger lots are being transcribed by volunteers able to translate the many markers written in French. West Warwick is 93% complete.

Clarke Ground(1) Cemetery,Westerly, Rhode Island
Submitted by Scott Bill Hirst (scottbillhirst@yahoo.com)

Burial place of Rev.Thomas Clarke, Rev.Joshua Clarke. Remains of John Maxson, probably also the dust of Tobias Saunders. Location description refers to a few rods east of Pound Road. Also noted is left bank of the Pawcatuck, on its curve above "Meeting House Bridge". Could this be possibly part of the First Hopkinton Cemetery? The only Pound Road locally I can think of is where the old Crandall homestead is in Westerly.

Barn Island Wildlife Management Area, Stonington, CT
Submitted by Reid Burdick (BRDIK@aol.com)

There are 30 or more Burdicks there with accompanying very old stones in decent shape. The cemetery is located on the state-owned Barn Island Wildlife Management Area. To visit the cemetery turn off Route 1 in Stonington, CT onto Greenhaven Rd. and travel a couple miles and then turn right on Stewart Rd. At the locked gate you must park your car and then walk the dirt road about 1/4 mile past a dilapidated stone gateway and the cemetery is on the left. During summer months there are many birds, as well as quite a bit of poison ivy and large misquitos.

Rhode Island Historical Cemeteries Transcription Project
Submitted by Elizabeth Townsend (town1023@comcast.net)

There is a wonderful site called the Rhode Island Historical Cemeteries Transcription Project (http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~rigenweb/cemetery/). You go by last name to find the page and work from there.

Two things I figured out – 1) wives maiden names are sometimes in brackets i.e. Briggs, Mary Caroline [Burdick] and 2) try looking for a husband in the wife’s family’s maiden name if you can’t find them under his family surname.

This has been a wonderful help since taking an actual trip to the cemeteries themselves isn’t very easy!
