Crossways  Cemetery

Also known as "Company Place Cemetery" and "Causeway Cemetery," this is the oldest cemetery in the town of Tisbury, Mass.


Photographs and notes compiled by C. Baer, 1997.

This is a complete collection of photographs and transcripts of gravestones at Crossways Cemetery on Mount Aldworth Heights in Vineyard Haven. Supplemental text is mostly from Vital Records of Tisbury Massachusetts to the Year 1850 (NEHGS, 1910) and The History of Martha's Vineyard, Mass., Vol. III, by Dr. Charles E. Banks. Additional thanks go to Ed Cooper and W. H. Renear for biographical notes on the Allen and Wetherell families. The photos were taken with a digital camera in the spring and fall of 1997.
