Want to have your ancestor's headstone photograph kept in our Society's Photo Depository? Send
it to us. We will feature some of these headstones from time to time.
There are a large number of Bucklins buried in Rhode Island
cemeteries. The Rhode Island
Historical Cemeteries Transcription Project will allow you to find them.
There are will be about 500,000 headstones recorded when the project is
finished. But the index is good. Go to
www.rootsweb.com/~rigenweb/cemetery/index.html which will give you the index
and the basics. The basic index is quickly indexed at
http://members.tripod.com/~debyns/cemetery.html If you want to access
the whole data base you have to go to the computer at the Rhode Island
Historical Society in Providence, Rhode Island.

Bucklin family grave area in Newman Church cemetery in
Pawtucket, RI This is the cemetery where many of the early Bucklins are
buried. The large central shaft and fenced off area ( in the background of
the first photo) is an easily identified landmark in the cemetery. On the photo
on the right, the American flag marks the grave of John Bucklin 1732-1790.
Grave of David b 1708
(son of Joseph b 1663 and Mehitable Sabin) next to graves of Daniel and Abigail
(children of David's brother John b. 1701 and Freelove Smith)
You can see how the tipped character of David's stone exposes it
to the ravages of time. It is important to read and record these stones
before they are totally unreadable.
An interesting area. On the right lower side is grave
site of Joseph b. 1662/63 d. 1729. His wife Mehitable Sabin survived him by many
years and may have chosen the sites for the two on the left of Joseph.
Next left of Joseph is his granddaughter Freelove (daughter of John b. 1701 and
Freelove Smith); and on far left side is site of Joseph's daughter Esther d. at
age 19 as the wife of Thomas Nichols
Barak Bucklin d. 11 Jan 1739/1740. He died less than 1
year after the Barak Bucklin whose grave is nearby.. His stone is leaning over,
and thus the face has been saved from the ravages of the elements. His
stone is across the small road from his father's stone. When you click on
this thumbnail to enlarge it, you will be able to read this stone.
d. 7 Feb 1738/1739. This stone is almost unreadable, and we would appreciate
anyone sending us a transcription of the stone. The thumbnail to the right
shows the area of this stone.
Another view of the grave of Barak d. Feb 7, 1738/39. It is the
tipped stone in the center of the bottom of this photo to the right of this
