This tiny cemetery is snuggled amongst some overgrown trees and bush at the intersection of Route 222 north, out of Valcourt, Quebec, and Bethel Road. It could easily be missed because there is no mention of any cemetery being there.
This small cemetery, dating back to the 1800s. Most of the 11 existing headstones are in poor condition which made reading them very difficult. However, the cemetery itself was well maintained.
I walked this cemetery in June of 2007, and transcribed from the stones to the best of my ability.- Joan Cruickshank
