Eastern Cemetery (1820s to present)



(click to enlarge)

   This cemetery is one of the three of the town’s earliest cemeteries. Western Cemetery is also within this group. Another one, south of town, is now lost. It was originally a burial area for the family and friends of Hezekiah Wilder who was considered to be one of the first settlers in Quincy. His wife, Ann, was the oldest inhabitant of Quincy when she died. Archibald Sumpter, another of the early settlers buried here, was an Indian Trader and opened an Indian trading post. Eastern Cemetery contains many attractive and interesting headstones and monuments.
