The George Bunker Cemetery
As seen from the main road
As seen approaching the cemetery
The George Bunker Cemetery is a small private family plot situated in the field in front of artist George Bunker's house (currently occupied by artist Edna Andrade), about 50 feet west of the main road. Although in plain sight, it's easily overlooked as there are only three stones, all flat to the ground. Only the "fence" -- a stout chain held up by ten short stone posts -- is visible from the road.
To find the George Bunker Cemetery, starting from the Town Dock go about 0.1 miles down the main road to where it makes a sharp turn to the left. Then go another fifty paces or so past the white houses on the right, until you're in front of a large field that offers a grand view of the Western Way. You'll see a dirt driveway that leads down to George Bunker's gray modern style house, near the shore at the far side of the meadow. The cemetery is about halfway between the main road and the house, on the left of the driveway.
The George Bunker Cemetery is roughly rectangular in shape, about 15 feet long and 8 feet wide. It is surrounded by a chain fence, held up by 10 stone posts.
All stones face north.
IN OLDER ARMS THAN HERS
ROCKED BY AN OLDER FATHER
TOSSED NO MORE
WHEN A WOMAN'S COFFIN
IS THE SEA
THE WHOLE OF CREATION
SHALL COME TO HER FUNERAL
+ end of inscriptions +
Please be aware that a person may be mentioned on more than one inscription. They may have their own stone, as well as being mentioned on another stone as "son of ..." or "father of ..." for example. However, the table has only one link to an inscription. It may not be the only reference. So study the inscriptions carefully for multiple references.
Stones with "dau. of ..." are especially useful as they reveal a woman's maiden name. Where possible, I've listed women under both their maiden and married names.
Family members were often buried close to each other. Note but don't click on the grave coordinate immediately to the left of the given name. Then click on the cemetery name just to the left of that, to go to the grave site layout, and click on nearby stones to see their inscriptions.
