DIED
July 18, 1871
Aged 73 Years

I have been dreaming of this project since my Dad first took me to the old family cemetery. It was a secret place that only "natives" could find which added to its mystique. To see the name SEARS on so many stones was intriguing. The cemetery is located on the east side of the boundary brook (Quivet Creek) between Dennis and Brewster on Cape Cod, Mass. It once fronted Old County Way but when The Kings Highway, Route 6A, was straightened, it was left off the beaten path. The burying ground is entered through an iron gate held by granite posts which are labeled 1881 on the left and 1721 on the right. I imagine the granite/iron rail fence was erected in 1881. The quiet knoll on which it is situated overlooks an unnamed pond which, is evidently the headwaters of Quivett Creek.

I vividly remember my first visit to the cemetery because of the case of poison ivy which I got there. The trail in from Airline road is about 75 yards long and has stepping stones over a herring ladder. Local residents recently repaired this ladder to insure the herring can return to their breeding ground. In recent years the path and the cemetery itself have been extremely well maintained. Katherine Sears(see No. 2566)left money in her will to the town of Brewster for maintenance and this may have helped with the care. Her father-in-law William G and brother-in-law Samuel T. are buried there.

A brass plaque mounted on a post at the entrance used to announce this cemetery as "The Ancient Sears Cemetery" with dates of use but all that remains is the post. The earliest stone is #38 and the last stone is #102, Knyvet Howes, who owned the house just northeast of the cemetery on Old County Way. Some stones are missing (evidenced by the existence of a footstone but no headstone). Other stones are unmarked. It appears there were once straight rows of stones which have probably "drifted" in the last 250 years. There are some blank areas with no stones which may be additional unmarked graves. I made up my own numbering system which is the order in which the stones were read. Some are cracked and one had broken into three pieces and was duplicated three stones further in the row. The slate stones from the 1700's have stood up the best. White marble stones have some kind of yellow lichen attacking them. It was often necessary to dig around the bottom of the stone to reveal the complete inscription.

The stones are typical for the Cape and show evidence of all the popular icons of the time. The tympanum or curved top part of the stone usually had a carved icon. The main body contained vital statistics and possibly an epitaph. The shoulders were usually rounded and below were borders containing wreaths, vines and other carvings. I have tried to show a general outline of the stone and describe the icon. I have also reproduced as carefully as possible the layout of letters on the stones. All of the popular icons are represented here. The winged skull, winged cherub, sunrise, willow and urn. The winged skull may have represented that death was impossible to beat but that with God's grace, the soul may be immortalized in heaven. The fleshed out cherub's face was less gruesome than the skull and may have been the beginning of the euphemisms we use to hide death's face. The sunset (or sunrise?) possibly signifies the end of life on earth and beginning of a new day. The urn and willow represent the people left on earth with the urn as the repository of the loved one and the willow as the tree of mourning. Some stones were cenotaphs which indicated that the person had been lost at sea (stone No 97). A couple of stones showed multiple names (especially for children), which may not be proof that the individuals were actually buried there. Stones were often placed many years later, which can account for discrepancies in locations and dates.

Epitaphs are especially interesting. Some stonecutters supposedly had books full of them from which a family could choose. Other epitaphs must have been composed by the deceased or his family.

In any case this study of our ancestors burying ground can reveal much about the way they lived and their hopes and fears. Work remains to be done to document the blank spots in the burying ground. Maybe Richard the Pilgrim is even buried here under the big boulder on the west side?
