Rev Cotton had a tablestone tomb

The inscription on the tablestone is unknown. It is reported "who in 1716 was given the privelege in town meeting of pasturing his horse in the burying ground, he to fence it in, joining each end of the fence to the mill pond". From a 1908 talk by Mrs Jerome Holoway, president of the Sandwich Historical Society. A copy of her talk is available in the CCCC Library.
