Dyer Hill Cemetery
Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts

Washington Street
Braintree, MA

Contributed by Frank Dyer, Feb 19, 2001 [dyerne@aol.com] Visit Frank's Website. Total records = 38.

I had to really search to find this cemetery, it is overgrown and shows years of neglect. It is on Washington Street, South Braintree, Norfolk County, Mass. on the top of a hill (called Dyer Hill). The access is through a break in the stone wall. The land for this cemetery was given by Shadrach Thayer (1701-1783), who lived on Dyer Hill. This is as complete as I can make it because many headstones are unreadable.
