The remains of the foundation and the two fireplaces of the Old Brick Church are located (underground) in the center of Rows 29-35. It appears that there may have been a small brick building (perhaps for storage of wood or supplies for horses) a few feet north of the church.


Several (possibly as many as a hundred or more) graves without tombstones have been discovered OUTSIDE the existing fence. Some of these are on at least three sides (north, south, and west) of the cemetery. The Cemetery owns 7/10ths of an acre of land, east of the east fence, which is not fenced and apparently never has been enclosed. The east boundary of the cemetery's property is the township road which once went due north on the section line between Sec. 35 and 36 of Carthage township.

BOSTON CEMETERY - THURBER FARM In May 2012 we learned from a clipping (the source of which is unknown) that Elizabeth Johnson Thurber, wife of James Thurber, was buried in a pioneer cemetery called the "Boston Cemetery" on the Thurber farm, near the Old Brick Church. The existence of this cemetery was evidently previously unknown. From the obituary of Oliver Thurber, it appears the Thurber family was living on what became the Keyser farm (61 1/2 acres), at the time of Elizabeth Johnson Thurber's death in 1847. The farm is now owned by Little Timber, LLC. The clipping indicates there were as many as a dozen or more pioneer burials in the Boston Cemetery. The deeds should be checked to see if there was a designation for a cemetery on the Thurber farm.
