Plymouth - Tyson Cemetery

Tyson-Pollard Cemetery
also known as Tyson Pond Cemetery, is located on the east side of Scout Camp Road on a steep hillside opposite the former camp, now the Coolidge Camp State Park, on Echo Lake. The land was given to the town by Moses Pollard, as a replacement for the Kingdom Cemetery because the ground there was so rocky that it was very hard to dig graves. The first burial there was in 1817; the last in 1954. Due to restoration work by Mr. Leon Parkhurst, local representative of the Vermont Old Cemetery Association, the cemetery is in very good condition. There are roughly 150 graves in the cemetery, but Mr. Parkhurst believes that there are other burials in this cemetery for which no markers survive.

Thanks to Charlotte Davis, host of the Bethel town genealogy site, for these photos, taken on her visit to the area in early Spring 2002.

This inventory is primarily from Plymouth burials before 1870, from 1919 gravestone readings by Floyd Hadley, which is in the Plymouth town clerk's office, and is available on microfilm through the Family History Library (film #28688).
Those gravestone transcriptions were done under Act No. 92 of 1919, "An Act to Provide for the Completion of the Vital Records of the State and to Require Town Clerks to Transmit Certain Records to the Secretary of State." That Act directed the Secretary of State to determine which town's records had not yet been deposited with the state, and provide forms for transcription; the towns were to transcribe and send to the state all birth, marriage, and death records in possession of the town or churches, which had not already been submitted. If the town death records prior to 1870 were incomplete, "The selectmen....shall, before October 1, 1919, cause to be copied at the expense of the town under the direction of the secretary of state, the inscription on all gravestones in their town erected to the memory of any person who died prior to 1870 so far as relates to name of deceased, date of death, age or date of birth, if given, and the name of the cemetery where buried and shall cause such records to be recorded in the town records." The Act further provided that records were to be made available for reference; the effective date was 26 March 1919.

Information in [square brackets] is added from a list of repair work done in 2000 by Leon Parkhurst, and a full inventory done by him in 2002.

Information in {curly brackets} was added by Nancy Wygant, from transcriptions of her relatives' gravestones, July 2001, or by other researchers who have contacted me.
