West Cemetery, Holliston

Holliston, MA

For some reason, this small, rural cemetery was once known as “Paddy Lincoln Cemetery.” Now it’s just “West Cemetery.”

[1] — The elder Enoch Chamberlain was likely born in 1737 and died in 1812. Capt. Staples Chamberlain, probably is not buried in this cemetery, though, since he was born in Newton and died in Roxbury. Staples did have a namesake grandson who was born in Holliston in 1796, but I suspect the government marker for him probably doesn’t belong here. (More info…)
