Location:  From Barnston take Route 141 toward Ayers Cliff. Watch for  Madore or Wheeler Roads on your left. Either will get you to the cemetery which is actually off Wheeler Road near the junction of Madore and Wheeler. 

This cemetery way down in the field a long way from Wheeler Road. There is no access to it unless you get permission from local farmers. If you decide to visit this cemetery you should go in spring or fall when you will not be a problem crossing the crop fields.  This old cemetery is being restored by the Barnston Heritage Cemetery Corporation. I saw evidence of some stone repair but it is still tricky walking as there are several woodchuck holes and uneven ground and broken stones. The earliest headstone appears to be 1810 and the latest is 1890. Some stones are illegible.


I visited this cemetery and did a complete recording of all existing and legible headstones in October 2012.Leslie Nutbrown []
