Note: - I got this information from the Town of Bozrah. Other than adding an occasional blank line when the Surname changes (to improve readability) this page is exactly as it appears on the original document. This cemetery is located on Old Salem Road (which runs parallel to Route 82 to the north), just over the border from Norwich. For more Bozrah genealogical resources visit the Bozrah US GenWeb site.
