Looking Toward the Henry Cobb Monument

From the front near the wall, it was easy to spot the monument I was looking for after looking at the photos of it at Find a Grave.

Thanks to Sharon Hanson Frey for doing such an excellent job of posting the information and the photos.

My husband exclaimed, "Well, that was easy!"

Dave Lambert's book [2d ed p. 14) and the information from Find a Grave made it easy to find this cemetery. It is located on scenic route 6A in Barnstable. The opening for cars to drive in was quite narrow and was one way. You could almost imagine horse and buggy driving in to visit dead loved ones. It's date is 1694. I imagine that means that there are a lot of unmarked graves here in the "pasture".
