Bristol, VT Cemetery Washed Out By Flood in late 1800's

In the late 1800's, a cemetery located near the New Haven river somewheres south of the existing lumber mills in Bristol, VT was washed out during a flood. Those stones that were later found were not returned to the original site, but were placed in Greenwood Cemetery in Bristol. Stones in Greenwood with a death date of earlier than roughly the early 1880's are from this old cemetery. The Bristol Cemetery Commission has lists for Greenwood and other Bristol cemeteries but not this one.

Does anyone know the name of this destroyed cemetery and/or have any burial lists?
