Rehoboth Historical Cemetery Number 5

The Ebenezer Medbury Lot is located along the East side of Pine Street approximately 5 miles South of Homestead Ave. It is North of Rocky Hill and near the site of the old Willis School House. George Tilton described it as a very small lot with few stones. The two stones listed below are accompanied by a smaller unmarked stone. 

There are two additional broken stones breaching the ground. It is unclear if these were grave markers at one time.

The first Stone Reads

"Sacred to the Memory of 

Ebenezer Medbury

who died Jan 24 1825

in the 68th year of his age

Revolutionary Soldier"

The second stone reads:

"Widow Elizabeth Medbury

died Sept. 5 1851 in the 84th year of her age.

Beloved in life, lamented in death,

calm and resigned, she yielded up her breath,

Freed from life's care and every pain,

Our loss we trust is her eternal gain."
