Cochrane Sleeper Cemetery
Compton County, Quebec

Contributed by Leslie Nutbrown, Jul 19, 2005 [lnutbrown@videotron.ca]. Total records = 148.

From the town of Compton, take Cochrane Road (branches off from Route 208) and follow this road past the Compton Cemetery into the scenic countryside for a few miles. The cemetery will on your right.

The land for this cemetery was originally owned by Jesse Pennoyer, Benjamin Sleeper and Matthew Cochrane.

This old cemetery dating from 1803 was restored some time ago and is in good shape despite its age. Many of the old stones are hard to read, however, and some are illegible.

In the listing below, those marked with asterisks (*) are either stones that are presently unreadable or else they have broken and are removed. These were compiled when the cemetery was restored and made freely available to anyone interested.

Susan Nutbrown and I visited this cemetery in July of 2005, and have transcribed from all existing and legible tombstones or markers.
