Bickford Corner Cemetery
Barnston District, Stanstead County, Quebec
From Barnston go south on the Barnston/Baldwin's Mills Road. After several miles and before you get to the fish hatchery, turn right on Stanstead Road (Chemin Stanstead). At the top of this gravel road you will bear right and at the next corner look down in the field you will see the cemetery.
There is no access road. You have to walk down from Stanstead Road across the field. If it is summer then the cemetery may not be visible at all due to corn or other crops blocking the view.
This cemetery seems to have been used for about a 100 year period from 1814- 1916. A few stones are hard to read and there are quite a few marker stones indicating more burials without headstones. This cemetery is being restored by the Barnston Heitage Cemetery Association.
I walked and transcribed this cemetery in May, 2006.
