There are many Quaker cemeteries in the area, two that I know of in Lincoln. The first is in town, Lee? The second is older, in the late 1700s early 1800s. I found some of my family there. Someone else in this forum noted it in a message that is searchable for Quaker Lincoln.

It is located through some fields (sheep pasture when we visited) and behind trees/bushes so cannot be seen in summer, barely visible in winter. It would be a good place to look. I will post some pix soon on the find a grave to help locate. I am not sure of name I will use as I am verifying it now, but it does not seem to be already listed.
My dad called it Friends Cemetery rather than Quaker, so I might use both names to differentiate it.

It is north of town, up Quaker Road, about 1.5 miles, on the right hand side of road (East) on rise that has a view. No fence or markings, you just have to spot some trees in the sheep meadow a few hundred yards off. If I lived up there I would do more photographing since it is hard to find.
