Old Cemetery

This old cemetery is no longer used. It is situated on a mossy bank along a gravel road near the marine haul-out on the wharf side of the river. It is fenced and has been maintained except many of the old stones are buried or broken. Transcribed by Sharon Chubbs-Ransom in the fall of 2002.
