From Lennoxville, take Route 108 East to the town of Cookshire. Continue through the town and the cemetery is on the right side of the road immediately after the Cookshire Protestant Cemetery.
This cemetery is called Cookshire Catholic Cemetery as well as Saint Camille Cemetery. It appears to have begun around 1872 much later than the adjacent Protestant Cemetery. The earliest burials were English Catholics but today most of the burials are French Catholics. The cemetery is well cared for with a nice fence and paved lanes.
Susan Nutbrown and I visited this cemetery in August of 2007, and we have transcribed from all existing and legible tombstones or markers.- Leslie NutbrownLegend:
