Excerpt from An Address by Rev. Henry Neill, and a Poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes: Delivered at the Dedication of the Pittsfield (Rural) Cemetery, September 9th, 1850, With Other Matter, and a Map of the Grounds

At the first meeting of the settlers on the lots in Pontoosue, Sept. 12, 1753, it was voted, That Hezekiah Jones, Israel Dewey, Elias Willard, Deacon Crowfoot, and Charles Goodrich, should manage the whole affair of building a meeting-house, and should agree on a place or places to bury the dead. For the next five years, no mention is made upon the town records of a burial place. The few who died during that time were buried in some spot, generally chosen for its elevation and dry soil, contiguous to the clustering homesteads, that, scattered at wide distances, were to be found throughout the township. As population increased, and the necessity for a central place of gathering, both upon the Sabbath and other public occasions, became apparent, measures were also taken to secure a place of public burial. After the entire completion of the first meeting-house in 1764, - a building in size forty-five feet by fifty-five, - the town voted "to clear one and a quarter acres near the meeting-house for a place of burial." This work, for reasons not specified, lingered on through several years.
