To reach this cemetery from Gloucester drive east on Route 14 for about 1/2 mile. Cemetery will be on the south or east side of road.

The original Episcopal Church cemetery was built on the Glenn Roy plantation on the north side of Ware River. In the 1680s Mordecai Cooke provided land for the new church cemetery. It was completed close to the time of the death of Rev. James Clack, who served from 1679 until his death in 1723.

  1. Rev. James Clack and his wife, Jane, are my 7th great-grandparents. I know that he is buried on the church grounds, but I don’t find a record of her burial there. She died about nine or ten years before he died and this was during his tenure as parish priest. Is there a record of her burial? Thank you for any information you might have. -Sally Moseley
