Jonathan Easton Burial Ground (NT015)

"History of Newport County, Rhode Island," New York, 1888, ed. Richard M. Bayles, mentions this lot as being "in good order." Robert Franklin mentions it as "a small walled enclosure, originally part of the old Easton farm, containing the graves of members of the Easton family" ("Newport Cemeteries," SPECIAL BULLETIN of the Newport Historical Society, Newport, RI, 1913, p. 43). Transcriptions by Alden Beaman published in "Rhode Island Genealogical Register," vol. 10. GPS coordinates 41 deg. 28' 53.18"N x 71 deg. 18' 0.10"W

IN 2012 a plan to develope the area of Easton Road and Faxon Green was created.  The plan created building lots and parceled the Easton burial ground as an independent parcel.  A 3' public right-of way was created on the north side of the Lot#1 for access to the burial site. (see attached map)
