So here’s an interesting item that’s been sitting in my “To be investigated” pile for some time now. I’m hoping someone can tell me a bit more about this cemetery, like who is buried there.
I found the following information on the internet some years ago. I’ve never found any other info on the cemetery but it certainly sounds promising. If you know anything about it, Please let me know!!
BarnIsland Wildlife Management Area, Stonington, CT: “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 mosquitos.”
