The Birth, Marriage and Death Register, Church Records and Epitaphs of Lancaster, Massachusetts, 1643-1850


At its annual meeting in March, 1889, the town of Lancaster made appropriations for the preservation in print of its older records of births, marriages and deaths. These records came from a variety of sources, including: Middlesex County court, town records, five churches (First Church, Second or Chocksett Church, Hillside Church, The Evangelical Congregation Church, and Universalist Church), Rev. George M. Bartol, and Judge Joseph Wilder. Epitaphs were preserved from the following seven burial grounds: the Old Burial Field; the Old Common Burial Ground to 1850; the Chocksett Burial Ground, 1736-1781; the Middle Cemetery to 1850; the Burial Place of the Shakers to 1850; the North Burial Field to 1850; and the North Village Cemetery to 1850. The everyname plus subject index lists places and persons.
