To reach this cemetery, take the Autoroute 10 E. towards Sherbrooke, exit 78, turn right on Blvd Bromont, right on rue Shefford left on chemin de Gaspé, and then left on chemin Miltimore. It is up on a bank on the northwest side of the corner of Rue de Gaspé and Chemin Miltimore. I am not sure if this is Cowansville, or East Farnham.
This cemetery was sent to me by Douglas Hall of Iron Hill, Qc. In his words: "The cemetery is old and abandoned, badly in need of upkeep. It is overgrown, with branches laying on the ground. It has an old page wire fence and still pretty solid, but the posts are now broken or tipped over so perhaps a few need replacement.
On Wallings map, this area was called Glen Farnham and there was a sawmill, a gristmill and a small creamery but it has all disappeared, Douglas was told that the grindstone was still there on the river bank but he hasn't found it yet."
I have transcribed what Doug Hall sent to me. Further questions concerning this cemetery may be directed to Doug Hall, firstname.lastname@example.org.- Marilyn Davis
