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.
