Norwell Cemetery Committee
Stockbridge Cemetery is a picturesque, well-maintained burial ground concealed by shrubbery on a quiet street. It is located on the north side of Mount Blue Street across from where School Street intersects. The cemetery is the family burial ground of the Stockbridges (west side) and the Stoddards (east side). Other noted Norwell families include the Litchfields, Turners and Williamsons --all of whom were descendents of the Stockbridges. The earliest stone dates back to 1758. An intriguing memorial is dedicated to Meshach Litchfield and his son, Ben, who were lost at sea on August 16, 1846. A portion of this cemetery is elevated and bounded by stonewalls. This mounded area covers two underground tombs and is the final resting place for six Revolutionary War soldiers who were members of the Stockbridge family.
