Old Hereford Cemetery
Hereford, Stanstead County, Quebec

Contributed by Leslie Nutbrown, Jun 08, 2006 . Total records = 35.

From Coaticook take Route 147 south to Route 141. Continue for some 20 km passing Lake Wallace and go almost to the very end of the road. Just before reaching the Quebec-Vermont border which you can see in the distance and just after the All Saints Anglican Church and cemetery, take Owen Road on your left toward East Hereford. Only go a short distance until the pavement ends. Then take a right into the woods on an unimproved road. The cemetery is on your right across from the boarded up old schoolhouse.

This old cemetery with its scattered stones is in good shape considering it is generally isolated and unknown from most people. It has a fence and a gate. Most of the stones are legible and the cemetery is kept mowed. I do not know who maintains this cemetery. It appears to have been used from about 1850 to 1926.

Susan Nutbrown and I walked and read this cemetery in June 2006 and made a complete recording from all legible tombstones and markers.

    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.
