Old Abercorn Cemetery
Abercorn, Brome County, Quebec

Chemin Des �gises Est., Abercorn, Qc

Contributed by Marilyn Davis, Apr 01, 2006, last edited Sep 12, 2012 [davismarilyn@axion.ca]. Total records = 234.

Take the Autoroute #10 East. Exit 68, and turn left towards Cowansville. In Cowansville take Rte 104, to West Brome, turn right onto Rte 139 and this will take you to Abercorn. Turn left onto Chemin des �glises and its a short distance to the cemetery.

As its name suggests, this is the oldest cemetery in the area. It is here that the first pioneers of the Township of Sutton, established in 1802 were buried. Peleg Spencer has rested here since 1836. His brother Thomas and his wife Lania also have their monument since 1836 and 1837. The Shepard, Bresee, Miner & Willey families are obviously among the first familys to have settled here.

This cemetery was established in or about 1809. Even though this is a very old cemetery, it is very well maintained. The majority of the monuments are in good condition. What I noticed the most is the number of young people, babies young children and young adults buried here compared to other cemeteries we have read. I believe they must have had a very difficult life in this area.

Marjorie-Anne Smith and I compiled this from tombstone inscriptions in the fall of 2005.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
