I know of no records that old for any cemetery. Record-keeping at
cemeteries is pretty much a late nineteenth century phenomenon, aside
from some scattered earlier records privately kept by grave-diggers
and ministers. Transcriptions of the old stones at Dorchester have
been published, though. See W. B. Trask, "Inscriptions from the Old
Burial-Ground in Dorchester, Ms." (NEHGR, 4 :165-170, 275-280;
5 :89-92, 255-258; 6 :179-182, 236-242).
