What is the difference in location for North Norwich Pioneer Cemetery and Quaker St "Old Brick" Friends Cemetery.
Listings seem to confuse the two; or are they part of the same cemetery?

The North Norwich Cemetery was known as the Tompkin's burial ground is located at 345705 Quaker St. Norwich, just on the North side of Quaker St. starting east and south to north Lot. 8, Con.3 and the Quaker Street Friends Cemetery is located on the Quaker St. just north of the village of Norwich just west of County Rd #59 (Old Hughway 59) Lot 9, Con 3. So they must be side by side i'm guessing considering the lots 8 & 9.

Actually, there is quite a distance between the 2 cemeteries. The Old Brick or Friends Cemetery is now called the Walker Memorial Gardens. The Pioneer cemetery has a plaque with the early settlers and is where the first settler, Peter Lossing, is buried (he was a Quaker and it was the site of the first meeting house in the area). The Old Brick was the site of the last meeting house, a brick onne, and it was down the road a piece and past the creek.

On the left, the cemeteries are listed as "North Norwich Pioneer" and "Quaker Street Friends (Old Brick)". Click on the name, then zoom in. If the map is correct, they appear to be approx. 2000 feet apart.
