Location: To get to the Blanchard cemetery, from the village of Ways Mills, take Isabelle Road to Provencher Road. The cemetery is on Provencher Road on your left very near a farm house.

You will have to be observant as the tiny cemetery could be hidden from the road by field growth depending on the time of year. I stopped at the farm (French speaking family) and asked to go to the cemetery and there was no problem as it is only a short walk from the road.

This small family cemetery is one of several rural cemeteries in this county that is surrounded by a farm. The cemetery is maintained by the Barnston Heritage Cemetery Corporation.

I visited and transcribed this cemetery in in May, 2006.
