Magoon Point Cemetery
Stanstead County, Quebec

From Georgeville take Magoon Point Road. Follow this road right to the end. Turn left onto Camber Road, and continue to Jones Road on your right. Stay on Jones Road for 2.2 km. You will see a wooden gate (see picture) on your left blocking a private road. The cemetery is down among a grove of trees in the middle of the field, adjacent to the private road. You will have to walk down across the field if there is nothing planted that you will disturb, or use the private road.
This cemetery is abandoned and there is no sign. There are mature trees and fallen trees and brush among the dozen or so headstones. The names of those listed as having no headstone came from the Stanstead Historical Society. I hope that this old burial ground will be restored one day in memory of those who lived and died in the area known as Magoon Point.
I walked and read this cemetery on Apr 23, 2007. This included all existing and legible tombstones.
