West Street Cemetery

West Street CemeteryFINDAGRAVE

The West Street Cemetery in Granby was founded while this land was still part of South Hadley. It is a churchyard cemetery since it is very close to the former Meeting House (or Congregational Church) that was on West Street. The old part of this cemetery is on land donated by James Smith on July 10 1769. The three apparent burials that are older then 1769 are most likely reburials from the Old South Hadley Cemetery when it was moved from 1902 to 1903. These are:

Mehitable Smith Taylor wife of Ebenezer Taylor

Samuel Dickinson husband of Esther White Dickinson

Ebenezer Taylor Junior

Elizabeth Smith Negrus

The North Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Granby. The cemetery is from 1764 and the West Street one is from 1769. North Cemetery
