New book by Carol MartinIn Memory of Chelsea’s Historic Cemeteries: Stories of the Old Chelsea Protestant Burial Ground, Chelsea Pioneer Cemetery, St. Stephen’s Cemetery, and Chelsea’s Homestead Plots

Here is a historical book with a difference. It traces the story of Chelsea’s community development in relation to its well-preserved cemeteries and the people buried in them.

Cemeteries were designed to be visited: the tombstones selected, the inscriptions chosen, are meant for the living. This book gives directions for finding each cemetery, “quick facts,” a site plan and descriptions of three walking tours. Carry it with you and visit Chelsea’s cemeteries!

Read about the types of cemeteries organized during pioneer days, and how they continued and changed over time. Who are some of the persons important in Chelsea’s history? And who are some of the others, less well-known? Here are stories of many of the families using each cemetery, and also a reference section with research notes. For family historians and genealogists, there is an extensive index of names on monuments and from burial records.

Chelsea’s cemeteries—resting places for the community’s people of the past.
