Location. In pasture southwest of intersection of Norway Drive and Crooked Road. UTM: 19T 0555924, 4918018; Lat./Long.: N 44°24′47.9″ x W 68°17′51.2″

Directions. From the intersection of Routes 3 and 102/198 at the north end of Mount Desert Island (just after you cross the bridge from Thompson Island), bear left on Route 3. In 4.6–4.7 miles, turn right onto Norway Drive. Travel 1.2–1.3 miles to a stop sign at the intersection of Norway Drive and Crooked Road. Turn right onto Crooked Road, and the cemetery is in the pasture on the left in approximately 0.1 miles.

History: This cemetery is called the Emery Cemetery on the 1981 7.5′ Salsbury [sic] Cove topographic map, but the earliest graves belong to the Thompson family.

Notes: During the summer of 1999, major improvements were made to this cemetery—brush was cleared, fallen gravestones were propped up when possible, and a fence was repaired to protect both the cemetery and the remains of an old iron fence.
