Location. Little Cranberry.

Directions. From the boat dock, follow the paved road to the left. In a short distance after passing a white church on the left, bear left at a fork in the road. Immediately before a small, shingled chapel on the left, follow a trail to the Merrill Family Burial Ground. This cemetery is adjacent to the further side of the Merrill Family Burial Ground.


Notes. Northern white-cedar trees border this cemetery and separate it from the Merrill Family Burial Ground. It is to be noted that this is a private family cemetery and not necessarily limited to Catholic family members.

Acknowledgements. Thank you to Mark Morse for his information about this cemetery.
