Location:  From Georgeville follow Route 247 South. Watch for East Road (Ch de l' Est) on your left. The cemetery is on your left a couple of kilometres and is hard to spot. It is in back of the old restored Richard Copp place, presently owned by the Lord family. You will need permission from them to cross their property to get to the cemetery on the knoll in back of their place.

Notes: This cemetery is abandoned. It is overgrown with brush and small trees but most of the remaining stones are standing or propped up. It appears to have been used mostly from about 1840-1870 but there is a headstone as recent as 1974.

I walked and read this cemetery on Apr 23, 2007. This included all existing and legible tombstones.
