Recorded byCandace Boudreau and Beverly Darby-Brown
This is a really old Catholic cemetery located off Pond Road and some distance in the woods, on property now owned by Fifoots. The owner of the property says he remembers there being at least 13 stones in the cemetery. We found only these seven. A lot of vandalism has occurred and the stones that are left are in very poor condition.
Any comments or queries regarding this cemetery should be directed to Beverly Darby-Brown, who is the person best equipped to address them.
