From Sherbrooke take Route 112 East toward Thetford Mines. You will pass by East Angus and Bishopton. The cemetery is located at the east end of Weedon. Turn left on route 157 and you can see the cemetery on 1st Avenue.
When Quebec's historic counties were abolished this area of Wolfe County became part of the M.R.C. of Le-Haut St-François.
This Catholic parish was founded in 1852. There was another burial ground before this one near the church and the remains of those interred there were brought to this cemetery in 1858. The official church records began in 1863. The cemetery is large and sprawling on sloped land. It is well maintained.
Records below were transcribed from tombstone inscriptions by Leslie and Susan Nutbrown during a visit to the cemetery in 2020. Records for those buried without tombstones were transcribed from church records, covering a period of 1863-1940.
