Old Sumner Road
This is a small, two-person cemetery with Caroline & Luther Crocker on Old Sumner Road,
about 30 yards up from turn off from N. Buckfield Rd. (High Street).
The house just before the cemetery - a large clapboard rambling house -
William Bridgham Esq.
(father of Caroline) according to an 1880
map of Buckfield, and Luther's will indicates that he had "arranged with Thomas
Bridgham [? child of Wm P. Bridgham?] to build a tomb for me and family".
On the corner of N. Buckfield Rd. and Old Sumner Rd. is
another house owned by
William P. [Pinkney] Bridgham
(brother of Caroline) but occupied by Charles Foster.
Next to that is the Unitarian Church.
I speculate that Charles Foster was the pastor
and the Bridghams allowed their house to be used as a rectory.
