Cemetery notes and/or description:
On December 12, 1849 a group of townspeople met in Falmouth Town Hall to discuss the need for a new cemetery. Presiding were Samuel P. Bourne and Erasmus Gould. Out of this meeting a committee of five was formed to select a suitable sight and enlist subscribers to purchase burial lots. . On January 2, 1850, the committee reported that a wood lot of over five acres had been purchased at a cost of $250, and that 2-dozen subscribers had been procured. Also at this meeting, the constitution of the cemetery was adopted and the first trustees and officers of the Association were elected: Thus this notable group founded the Oak Grove Cemetery Association of Falmouth, an organization that continues to this day.
