Location:  About halfway between the towns of Hatley and Compton and branching off Route 208 is Chemin Pouliot. The cemetery is located on this gravel road on the left side heading south. It was known as the Bowen School House Burial Ground as seen in church records.

Notes: This old 19th century cemetery is maintained by members of the Bowen family. Quite a few stones are hard to read. The earliest stone appears to be 1813.

Susan Nutbrown and I walked and transcribed this cemetery in June of 2005.
