Location:  Follow Route 112 East from Sherbrooke to Bishopton. Turn left onto route 255 and go to Saint Adolphe de Dudswell. Stay right around Silver Lake (Lac d'Argent) and you will be on the road to South Ham. Continue for several miles. Watch for a small road on your right called Ch. Hamel. Do not turn on this road but rather watch for a small entrance on the left side of the South Ham Road, just up the grade beyond a culvert. Turn here as the cemetery is not visible from the road. You will see the cemetery a short distance on your right.

Notes: This old cemetery is the final resting place of some of the early settlers in the area once known as Earl. I visited this cemetery in April, 2009 accompanied by Wells Coates and Ashton Hallam. I recorded names from legible monuments and from the wooden plaque.
