0 Marked Stones in this Cemetery
G.R. 57. - gravestone record, Howard private lot, Old County, Road, Westport, Vital Records to 1850. This cemetery was also registered for the Town of Dartmouth as MHC 849 by Judith Lund. There are approximately 12 unmarked fieldstones remaining out of an estimate made by Eleanor Tripp in 1979 of 40. This is an historically important cemetery because of the intermarriage of the Howard family with Captain Paul Cuffe's family. Eleanor Tripp reports the following: "Andrew Sherman writes there was a large stone with the names of the Cuffees. Many years ago it was thrown in the road and smashed." "Sally Leomis records show that Naomi Howard, wife of Peter, was a Cuffee." This cemetery may include both Peter and Naomi Cuffe Howard. Westport Vital Records show that Naomi Howard is buried here.
