Cemeteries of Buxton, Maine

Cemeteries and individual entries are listed alphabetically.

Buxton, Maine, was incorporated in 1762. Until that time it had been Narragansett Number One, granted to survivors or heirs of soldiers who had fought in King Philip’s War. Permanent settlement occurred in 1750.

I acknowledge with deep appreciation the work of John Eldridge Frost and Steve Nichols, who have written previous records of the town’s burial places.

I grew up in Buxton and have a deep reverence for the history of the town and its people. When I began working on my genealogy a few years ago, I thought of all the people who might be looking for ancestors buried in Buxton’s many forgotten burial places. I am glad to be able to get Buxton’s cemeteries on-line, where everyone can access the records.
