The location of Russellville Cemetery









A visit to the Russellville Cemetery ...

Introduction ...

The Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) has a MACRIS<1> database entry for the Russellville Cemetery (MACRIS ID #HAD.803). Once on the MACRIS page, look for the dark blue INV icon on the line 'Inventory Number: HAD.803'. 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.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- ) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point at the Russellville Cemetery. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.4202, Longitude: -72.5756     [Map].
