Proctor and Nurse families

Surnames: Proctor, Jacobs
I have many ancestors involved in the witchcraft era in Essex County. I've just come from the Nurse family burial ground behind Rebecca Nurse's homestead in Danvers, MA. There were stones for the Nurse family (of course) and John Jacobs (my ancestor, the reason for the visit) and also many Proctor stones. What is the relationship between the Proctors and the Nurse family?? Why were they in the same burial ground? The only relationship I know of of is that one of Rebecca and Francis Nurse's children and one of John Proctor's children both married siblings of the Very family. Were they neighbors, or did they have some other relationship? There was no caretaker at the house to answer questions since it is winter now.
