Couch Burial Hill, Greens Farms, Fairfield Co, CT, USA

Also called Couch Hill, Burying Hill and Burying Hill Beach Cemetery. According to Elizabeth Schenck in The History of Fairfield...Vol.1, p.364, published in 1889, Couch Burial Hill is at Frost Point. Near the actual point called Frost Point (i.e.-"at" Frost Point) is Burying Hill Beach at the end of Burying Hill Rd., found at the mouth of Greens Farms Brook. South of the Connecticut Turnpike, it is near the beach and end of the road, where there is a small hill. Most likely, the cemetery was located there, but no longer exists.

"He was buried in land belonging to him at Frost Point looking out upon the sound, which he had set apart as a family burial place, & which was long known as the Couch Burial Hill. This spot could be pointed out until within the last few years, but now almost every trace of the tombs & graves have been obliterated. It lay west of the present Phipps Green." — The History of Fairfield..., Vol. 1, by Mrs. Elizabeth Hubbell Schenck, published in 1889.
