(updated 8 October 2011)





Location. Near end of private road on Leland Point. UTM: 19T 0555830, 4920457; Lat./Long.: N 44°26′06.9″ x W 68°17′54.6″

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, and the road leading to the cemetery is on the left in 3.7-3.8 miles.

History.

Notes. This cemetery is completely enclosed, primarily by a chain link fence, but along the side that one sees when approaching from the road, there is a wrought-iron-looking fence. On this fence is a hand-painted sign with the name of the cemetery. One old wood post with a decorative top, presumably from an earlier fence, is still present. The grass is mowed and trimmed.

Notes:
   1Headstone is laying on the ground and crumbling. Footstone reads “P. A.”.
   2This stone is laying on the ground, and the portion that contained Orilla’s name is badly deteriorated. That it is her stone can be inferred from its position relative to the stones of her son and daughter and from the two remaining letters f and o in “wife of”. Also, in the four lines of verse on the stone is a reference to the husband and family of the deceased.
   3This stone is laying on the ground, and the upper portion containing the name of the deceased is completely worn off.
   4The headstone on a grave adjacent to Susan LELAND likely marks her husband David’s grave. The footstone on that grave reads “D. L.” and her stone notes that she is the “wife of David”.
   5Different middle initial on different stones. Mabel’s maiden name was DALTON, which is the likely source of the middle initial D.
   6Stone broken.
   7Top of stone is missing. Initials are from footstone.
