Austin, Brome County, Quebec
Location: Taylor Road, Austin, Quebec.
Out of Sherbrooke, Quebec, take the Eastern Townships Autoroute 10 West, to the St.-Benoit-Du-Lac exit (Exit # 115), then follow Route 112 East in the direction of Magog, Quebec, to the intersection of Route 112 and Chemin des Peres. Follow Chemin des Peres for about 6 miles. Chemin des Peres becomes Chemin Nicholas Austin when you reach the Austin townline. Then watch for the Taylor Road leading off to the right.
Notes: It was quite common for the early pioneers to bury on their own farmland, and this cemetery is situated on farmland that probably was once settled by the Taylor-Wing family. When I visited it, the cemetery was in a state of disrepair. It was surrounded by a chain fence, but it had been overgrown with thick bushes, and what remained of a few headstones, couldn’t be read. Therefore my listing is based on previously recorded data.
