Cemetery History

The land for this cemetery was originally owned by Jesse Pennoyer, Benjamin Sleeper and Matthew Cochrane. This old cemetery dating from 1803 is one of the oldest burial grounds in the Eastern Townships. It was restored some time ago and is in good shape despite its age. Many of the old stones are hard to read, however, and some are illegible. It is sometimes referred to in church records as Sleeper Hill Burial Ground or Sleeper School House Burying Ground.

Cemetery Records

Records published below were originally transcribed from all legible tombstones by Leslie and Susan Nutbrown during a visit to the cemetery in July 2005, and were then revised again during a subsequent visit in July 2016.

In the listing below, those marked with asterisks (*) are either stones that are presently unreadable or no longer exist. These were compiled when the cemetery was restored.

Some burials listed here were obtained from church records and indicated by (CR).

    A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

    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.
