Gilman Corner is found on the cross section of Highway 104 and 139 in West Brome.
I have researched this old burial ground and with the help of Joan Westover, can provide the following information.
What a shame they can't leave things where they were put in the beginning. I have not been happy since I learned what actually happened, but you can't stop progress.
It seems that the Gilman cemetery was located at Gilman corner, where the Papillon Restaurant now stands. It was removed to Pettes Cemetery on Sep 23, 1959, because Comet Construction wanted to make an asphalt plant and gravel pit there.
The stones were put into one large monument in Pettes Cemetery. I have found no information as to why that was done, instead of each stone placed as they were in Gilman Cemetery.- Marilyn Davis
