Wardboro Cemetery: Maps of 1858 and 1876 show varying home sites
near here. Across the road, north of the present cabin lived Martin Ward
with his wife Carolyn and their four children (1858), while later J. Waters
used the site. You can follow an old road to the right, just before the
cemetery. It leads (after you ford the stream) to Dan Archer's farm (now
cellar hole) up on the high plateau. Earlier S. Norton fanned here. Somewhere
on the right of the road was a saw mill and two other homes in 1858.
Thirty two people are buried in the cemetery: the first, Zechariah Ward in 1842, the last, infant Emma Clark in 1909. Life could be pretty precarious in Wardsboro. During the civil war years of 1862-1865 only young people were buried here - three Tanner children in just one summer. The family names on gravestones reflect the Wardsboro community and its changing residents - Wards, Tanners, Shufeldts, Waters, Potter, Phillips, Archer, Granger and Clark.
