Default Ossipee cemetery with numbered stones

Can anyone help with this question about Ossipee? We were driving on rt 171 (Granite St.) heading to rt 16 after crossing rt 28...near the old Carroll Cty. Registry of Deeds. There is a cemetery on the left on Granite St, followed by an adjacent cemetery (seperated by a fence). In this 2nd cemetary are about 280 numbered small stones(no names), all identical. I was not able to find out anything on the internet about this cemetery but thought maybe it was related to the Carroll Cty Farm or prison, of which I know very little about. One or 2 of the stones had been replaced with slightly bigger stones with names and dates. One was a woman who died late 1800's, another a man who died in the 1930's. Thanks to anyone who knows about this...we are history buffs.

Default Cemetary

It is indeed a paupers cemetary or for people who died at the County Farm or Prison.

I agree w/ AG. "amazing and sad"

Default Etched in Granite

MJ Pettengill has written a book called Etched in Granite about this cemetery. You should be able to get it through your local librarian or book store.

On downside of rt 171 from 16, many small numbered stones. I've thought for the poor, and from the county home.
