Rhode Island’s Quakers and their Burial Practices
Tuesday, August 21

Free & Open to the Public.
(Note start time and location – as they differ from the other lectures in the series.)
Elizabeth Cazden, an independent scholar who is expert in Rhode Island Quaker history, will speak on “Rhode Island’s Quakers and their Burial Practices” at the Little Compton Friends Meeting House on Tuesday, August 21 at 6 PM. Ms. Cazden will focus on how Little Compton’s Friends fit into the regional Quaker community and will explore regional Quaker burial practices. Recently, ground penetrating radar discovered multiple rows of unmarked graves to the east of Little Compton’s Quaker burial ground. The talk is hosted by the Little Compton Historical Society as part of their larger “Remember Me” project celebrating Little Compton’s 46 Historic Cemeteries.
This talk and the others in the series are free and open to the public and are made possible by the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities. No registration is required.
The final talk in the series will take place in September:
