Location: Shefford Blvd, Shefford Co., Bromont, Qc.

Bromont is approximately 72 km. from Montreal, drive east on the Autoroute #10 towards Sherbrooke, take exit 78, turn right onto Boul. Bromont, left on Boul. Shefford. Drive towards Waterloo, and you'll see this little cemetery on the side of the highway.

Notes: There are 2 cemeteries on this street, Bromont is the second one. It is a small cemetery and it is still in use today. We found only a couple of stones that were impossible to read although the monument to the pioneers is in need of a good cleaning.

That monument is erected to the memory of the East Farnham Pioneers. These were loyalists and their families who came to Brome County from Massachusetts & Vermont to settle and prosper. The heads of the families applied for and received grants of 1200 acres each. Those on this monument are identified with an * asterisk following the entry.

Marjorie-Anne Smith and I compiled this transcription from tombstone inscriptions in Oct of 2005.
