|The Longmeadow Cemetery was created by the
Longmeadow Parish in 1718 and the first person buried was Experience
Hale in 1719. This database can be used to
find specific individual burial records or sort records according to
family name, burial date, location, etc. Included with this database are
photographs of individual gravestones as well as other
family related and gravestone related information. We hope to
add more images to the database in the near future.
To locate a gravestone in the cemetery, you can use the cemetery lot map which is organized by lot owner. Be sure to read the section on location nomenclature.
The oldest gravestone recorded in this database is for Mary Colton, age 83 who died on October 10, 1682. This gravestone (with no remains) was moved from the old Pine Street cemetery in Springfield, MA to the Longmeadow Cemetery.
The full database (see Public Database) now contains records (4152) of all individuals buried in the Longmeadow Cemetery. At the present time some individual records shown below in the Public Database are incomplete but additional information is being added daily.
If you that find a burial record is missing, incomplete or inaccurate, please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can complete some research and make the necessary changes to the database.
Much of the old gravestone information compiled for this database (see the Pre-1860 Grave Stones) including photographs is the work of Al and Betsy McKee of Longmeadow, MA. All of this information can be printed or exported using the utilities provided for public use. If the information is used for something other than private use, credit and acknowledgement of the source would be greatly appreciated.
