Sign

Nichols Farm Burial Ground (also known as Nichols Village Cemetery) was established in 1850. It is not to be confused with Nichols Farms Burial Ground, Ye Old West Yard 1806 which is about a block away. Nichols Farm 1850 is on the appropriately named Cemetery Road, off of Shelton Road, in Trumbull, Connecticut. Nichols Farm 1850 still hosts modern burials. On one of the gate posts is a plaque: "To Honor Ed Parker, Our V-Pres. Emeritus. For 63 years he served this cemetery."

I never saw a stone in this shape at other cemeteries, but Nichols Farm has two.

Oddly enough, all four children died within days of one another.

Caroline E. (died April 1856) and Franklin A. Nichols (died March 26, 1856).

Homer E. (died April 1856) and Seymour P. Hawley (died April 18, 1856).

This area includes a memorial to Colonel Lewis Fairchild,

born July 10, 1774, died March 8, 1850.

"Buried in the West Yard."

(Possibly referring to Nichols Farms Burial Ground, Ye Old West Yard 1806).
