Old Western Burial Ground, Lynn, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA

Notes: The Old Western Burial Ground is one of Lynn's oldest cemeteries. The graveyard is located in West Lynn, west-side of Lynn Common by Market Square. Most of the stones are engraved with the willow tree motif, appearing to be a common theme in this era.

----
This Burying Ground is in the westerly part of the city which was originally the centre of the town. It is bounded northerly by Market Square, easterly by Elm Street, southerly by Ash Street and westerly partly by South Street.
It was the only one in use by the whole town from its commencement till about 1720, the town
then including besides the territory of the present city, the entire limits of the towns of Lynnfield, Saugus, Swampscott and Nahant. No other place of burial, public or private, is known to have been used until the formation of the second and third parishes, Lynnfield and Saugus, churches having been established in those parishes in 1720 and 1732, respectively.

Several generations of my direct ancestors, going back to my 10th great on my paternal grandmother's line are laid to rest in this cemetery, along with no doubt many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
