McConnell Cemetery, West Hatley
Stanstead County, Quebec

                                                                                                                                      

 

Location:  From Ayer's Cliff, follow route 141 west around Lake Massawippi and take Ayer's Cliff Road (Ch. d'Ayer's Cliff) on your right toward St. Catherine-de Hatley. The cemetery is next to a gravel pit on the left side of the road a couple of miles from Ayer's Cliff. It is a bit hard to find but there is a sign. Look for an opening and a gate. Drive up the trail through the woods to the cemetery in the clearing. 

The cemetery is maintained by Crystal Lake Cemetery Company. It is in good shape and most of the stones are readable. It is really a beautiful, tranquil  burial ground. Church records sometimes refer to this cemetery as the McConnell School House burying ground or the cemetery in West Hatley. It has been here since about 1820.

I last visited this cemetery in June of 2014, and photographed all monuments.  It is used occasionally today. Some data included below has been taken from church records.
