To reach cemetery from Smithboro, drive east o State Hwy 17, turn right or south onto Hwy 282, then left onto Church Street. The cemetery will be on the left or north side of the street.

This cemetery is sometimes called the Canfield Cemetery. It has a mix of modern and old tombstones. I am not sure who owns and maintains it. It does not appear to be used for burials anymore.

This is a complete listing of all legible headstones done on Jun 16, 2012.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
