The Old Linebrook Cemetery is at the corner of Linebook and Newbury Road about 6 miles west of Ipswich center where the road fork. Parking is very limited. The 275 stones are quite old and many have been severely eroded. The cemetery is surrounded by light woods in the rear,and the front of the cemetery is bordered by an ivy-covered stone wall. The cemetery was first used in 1725; regular burials began in 1768, and only 24 were interred here since the beginning of the 20th Century.

Location of cemetery:
Located 6 miles west of downtown Ipswich, in the Linebrook Parish section of Ipswich. Take Linebrook Road for about 6 miles total, crossing Route 1 North, (at Cumberland Farms Store). Go 1 mile (pass the New Linebrook Cemetery which is on your right) and the cemetery is at the corner of Linebook and Newbury Road, where the road forks, and the small center ‘island’ is covered with Cedar trees. Parking is not easy on this narrow country road; you are best off pulling over as close as you can to the old stone wall of the cemetery.

BURIAL RECORDS

Entries are alphabetical. NEE refers to maiden names. The VETERAN entry is not yet working properly. (If I had evidence that the person was a veteran, you should see a check mark next to the word “VETERAN”.) The notation of MAP refers to coordinates on a hand-drawn map that I made of the location of the stones within the cemetery; it is a small cemetery and it is relatively easy to find the stones without a map. GRID refers to the conventional grid system that was used by many, including the WPA, to map the cemeteries. The lowest letters are to the left (south) as you face the cemetery from the street. The lowest numbers are closest to the street. “Inscription 2003 field observations” were detailed by reading and recording each stone, and “WPA records from 1930” were taken from Works Progress Administration (WPA) typed 3×5 index cards, originally prepared in 1935. (In some cases these WPA entries have dropped a word or two, due to software errors.)

Sources and limitations of data:
FIELD OBSERVATIONs were completed in 2003, including footstones. The 2003 field observations were made me, Bruce Laing, and I checked them against the WPA records from 1935, adding that information to fill in the blanks. These records include all readable stones from 2003 and all the WPA records from 1935. Occasionally stones are found and last names are unknown, in which case the other information on the stone is not included in this listing. (As noted above, in some cases, a few words of the WPA inscriptions were dropped from these records when I translated the data from Microsoft Access into Microsoft RTF files in order to upload to the web.) Other errors, inaccuracies, and omissions may exist. These records have not been checked against the Vital Records kept by the town, which are not sorted by cemetery in any event, but are another good source of data.
