Notes: Part of this cemetery's boundary is marked by a chain–link fence, and part is marked by iron stakes driven into rocks. A portion of the cemetery is somewhat overgrown, and many gravestones are laying on the ground. A map drawn from a survey by Herrick & Salsbury, Inc., of Ellsworth is on file at the Hancock County Registry of Deeds (17:180, 15 January 1982). See 1501:343–345 for a description of the property.
