Total records = 45.
Route #165 North, 1/4 mile on southeast side from Rt.201 and Rt.165 intersection.
A few yards from the Griswold Town border behind the CT State sand shed.
It has a legal right of way where the highway fence ends.
The land for this cemetery was part of the Samuel Kinne Homestead
with the first burial 1824. Voluntown, CT was a milltown so there
are many Rhode Island natives buried here. The last burial was in
1905. It's condition is now excellent and is maintained and owned
by the town of Voluntown. No new burials.
There are 46 recorded burials and many fieldstone markers. Work was
done by the Children of the American Revolution, Norwich, CT. Voluntown,
CT. and descendents of the Kinne's.
The restoration represents two years of work to reclaim it from the
elements and vandalism. The rededication Sep 2002 was a joyous occasion
with descendents from many places.
These records were compiled using the 1936 CT Hale Inventory, the
1972 Voluntown His. Soc. Inventory and our own inventory when we restored,
researched and mapped this site Apr 2000-Sep 2002.
