Location: From Coaticook take Route 147 south to Route 141. Continue for some 20 km passing Lake Wallace and go almost to the very end of the road. Just before reaching the Quebec-Vermont border which you can see in the distance and just after the All Saints Anglican Church and cemetery, take Owen Road on your left toward East Hereford. Only go a short distance until the pavement ends. Then take a right into the woods on an unimproved road. The cemetery is on your right across from the boarded up old schoolhouse.

Notes: This old cemetery with its scattered stones is in good shape considering it is generally isolated and unknown from most people. It has a fence and a gate. Most of the stones are legible and the cemetery is kept mowed.  It appears to have been used from about 1850 to 1926.

Susan Nutbrown and I walked and read this cemetery in June 2006 and made a complete recording from all legible tombstones and markers.
