This Cemetery is situated in Weatogue about a third of a mile northwest of Dutchers Bridge. It was purchased by the town on Nov. 8, 1802, for a consideration of a dollar paid to Capt. Ruluff Dutcher of Canaan and it is stated in the deed "that an ancient burying ground" was included in the purchase. The grantor stipulated that the plot should be fenced by the town and he reserved for himself and his heairs the right to pasture sheep and calves withen it.
This cemetery is in a neglected condition most of the time. A small amount of money expended upon grading and more frequent mowings would improve it greatly. Nearly all the stones are clean and well preserved.
