The location of Blackinton Cemetery

 
 

Profile for the Blackinton Cemetery ...

Introduction ...

Since our focus is on geography, we don't have any burial or interment information. Nor do we have any contact information for the Blackinton Cemetery. For information of that nature, we suggest the Find-A-Grave<1> website: The Blackinton Cemetery (FAG ID #2347166)

The Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) has a MACRIS<2> database entry for the Blackinton Cemetery (MACRIS ID #NAM.801). Once on the MACRIS page, look for the dark blue INV icon on the line 'Inventory Number: NAM.801'. Click on this link to open a PDF document with more detailed information contained on scanned documents.

We have organized the cemeteries in our Gazetteer based on a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. We found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site. Should you find yourself in the same situation, we hope that our Gazetteer helps you discover your lost ancestor.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance starting in . A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- ) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point at the Blackinton Cemetery. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.7051, Longitude: -73.1711     [Map].

<4>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been unable to verify its accuracy, but are confident that we have placed the marker within a few hundred feet of the actual location. Typical reasons for being unable to verify a location is that it might be either overgrown or on private property. A physical visit will probably be needed to verify the location.
