Description: Captian Daniel Burrows and Captain Silas Burrows are buried here along with other family members and descendants of the large Burrows Family of Mystic. This cemetery stretches up a hill with oldest markers near the top of the hill. Steps have recently been added to make access to this cemetery easier for visitors. However, the concrete used does nothing to add to the character of this small cemetery.
