Resting Places: In person visit to Sears Ancient Cemetery & Dennis Ancient Cemetery

The Sears Ancient Cemetery near Dennis, Massachusetts.

I visited here May 13th.

The fourth picture which is a large rock, is probably the Memorial to Richard Sares, the patriarch who came to the Plymouth colony, our ninth great-grandfather.

I particularly was able to more easily read the tombstones of Samuel and Mercy.

The cemetery is a very pretty spot, on a slight rise above a beautiful pond that has a stepping stone brook, that feeds out to a stream that leads to the ocean.
