Red School House Cemetery

Lincklaen

The Red School House Cemetery is located in Lincklaen on the South side of County Road 12C, just West of its junction with County Road 12. It is a small Cemetery of rectangular shape, approximately 80x130 feet. The burial ground was used between 1812 and 1895.

The data presented for this cemetery is extracted (with minor corrections) from the booklet Gone But Not Forgotten, by Thomas Lloyd; it is used with the kind permission of the City of Norwich which had authorized the work. Since the survey was limited to recording the markers and stones present only, Lloyd did not attempt to verify or research the burials. Hence, there are some 3 burials he recorded as "unknown" where either the headstone was missing or unreadable.

In the data given below, a column is included that is headed "location". This is a reference to the author's system of gridlines that is used to identify a unique 20'x20' square area within the cemetery. These locations are included to give the researcher an idea of where a grave is placed in relations to others. A family, for instance, will usually be buried within a small area, whereas others with a similar surname will probably be some distance away. In a similar vein, a husband and wife may share a "double headstone;" families may be listed on monuments, etc.
