Old Burial Hill, Marblehead.
Toward Gingerbread Lane — 1
Red Ant Trail, leading down the back of Old Burial Hill toward Gingerbread Lane.
The cluster of gravestones by Redd’s Pond is bordered on the north by a stone wall. Following the wall, away from the pond, is Red Ant Trail, a path that leads down the back side of the Hill. It ends at Gingerbread Lane, a way which has existed since 1682. Although generations of Marbleheaders have used Red Ant Trail to enter Old Burial Hill, it passes over private property, so this route is not one of the official entrances to the graveyard.

In this somewhat neglected area of the grounds are several nineteeth century gravestones and one above ground crypt. First is a broken, eroded, white marble stone, partly obscured by the stone for Archibold and Rebecca Sinclair.
