Saint Sylvester West Cemetery
Saint Sylvester, Lotbiniere County, Quebec

Contributed by Leslie Nutbrown, Jul 18, 2006, last edited Apr 05, 2007 [lnutbrown@videotron.ca]. Total records = 73.

From Leeds Village, take Route 269 North, also called the Craig Road about 11km. You will see a road on your right leading to Saint Sylvester, but stay on Route 269. Watch for a pig farm (Porcine) on the right. You will turn right here. There used to be a sign at this point but it has disappeared. Keep right past a small gravel pit and go up a small grade and the cemetery is on your right.

The cemetery was in use from the 1850s and it appears the last burial was in 1971. It is sometimes referred to as the King Cemetery as there is King family section enclosed within the main cemetery. There is a fence and a gate but no sign. It is neat, kept mowed and there are shrubs and flowers.

If you have ancestors buried here and wish to help with the upkeep of the cemetery, please contact Mildred Robinson of the Megantic County Historical Society (418-453-2247).

Susan Nutbrown and I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 16, 2006 and made a complete recording of all legible tombstones.
