From Ayers Cliff take Route 141 East. Just at the edge of town take Boynton Road (gravel road on your right). About halfway between Boynton and Tomifobia watch for Amy Road on your right. Turn on this road and continue for a couple of kilometers. 

The cemetery sits back from the road on the right side in what was once called Amy Corner. There is a right of way to the cemetery so you would not be crossing private property although you have to drive or walk through the field.

The cemetery appears to have begun around 1812 and likely named after Capt. John Brown. The cemetery was restored some years ago and the headstones were arranged in two parallel rows set in cement.

I think the original boundaries of this cemetery were larger at one time. The last burial appears to be in 1931. It has a fence and gate and maintained by the Crystal Lake Cemetery Company.

Susan Nutbrown and I walked and read this cemetery in May of 2005.
