Abel's Hill Cemetery

Located on South Road in Chilmark, Mass.

Photographs and transcripts compiled by C. Baer, 1999. Biographical notes are from The History of Martha's Vineyard by Dr. Charles Banks.

These photographs and transcripts were collected from some of the colonial gravestones at Abel's Hill Cemetery in Chilmark, Dukes Co., Mass. The photos were taken with a digital camera in February, 1999. I hope to add more eventually.
