Thomas Clark 1683

full stone

This oldest gravestone in Sandwich was defaced sometime after 1900 for unknown reasons by unknown persons. The name and date are faintly visible only under very good lighting conditions.

The 1937 book Cape Cod Pilot by Joseph Berger indicates that in 1937 the oldest gravestone(unidentified) in this cemetery was dated 1680 and Sandwich had buried its dead in this location since 1663.
