Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Massachusetts
Mt. Auburn Cemetery, which is located in Middlesex County, was founded
in 1831 by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society as the first in a
national movement toward creating "rural" cemeteries. The cemetery is
now a haven in the midst of the city and is listed on the National Register
of Historic Places. This collection gathers information from headstones
in the cemetery. In addition to providing the decedent's name, it includes,
where available, the following information: birthdate, birthplace, death
date, death place, relationship information (i.e., wife of or brother
of), military service, occupation, and age.
