Mount Pleasant Cemetery
Ditchfield, Frontenac County, Quebec

Contributed by Leslie Nutbrown, Jul 22, 2007, last edited Feb 20, 2008 . Total records = 56.

From Lake Megantic's main street (Laval Street) take Route 204 (Salaberry Street) east out of town. At Frontenac take Range 4 south toward Spider Lake (Lac aux Araignées). Continue on this gravel road for 11 km. The cemetery is at the top of a long hill on your left beside Saint John Anglican Church. The view from the cemetery is spectacular.

This small cemetery began about 1890 and is used today but there are not many English left in this area. The cemetery is kept mowed and trimmed. There is also a monument dedicated to the pioneer families who once lived here. Names appearing on the monument are: Anderson, Baker Blaydes, Booth, Braddock, Brown, Burt, Chadfield, Couchman, Fletcher, Hight, Green, McLure, Mead, Paxton, Persons, Rider, Robinson, Rowell, Shields, Stewart, Swan, Simpson, Veary, Willoughby, Wood.

Susan Nutbrown and I made a complete recording of all tombstones in this cemetery on Jul 22, 2007.

    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.
