Location. Harding Point, Great Cranberry.

Directions. From the town dock, walk straight ahead on the main road. Soon the road rises, curves to the left, and then runs more or less straight. From this straight section, turn left onto the paved road across from the tennis court. Follow this road generally downhill through several gentle curves and then a sharp curve to the left followed by a more or less straight section, and then another sharp curve, this time to the right. After this sharp curve and immediately before the pavement ends, turn right onto a dirt road. The third (June 2000) driveway (near telephone pole 2 1/2) on the left leads to the cemetery, which is on the left of this drive in approximately 250 feet.


Notes. The cemetery is not enclosed, but there are wood posts marking its apparent boundary. Several gravestones are laying on the ground.

Date of most recent visit. 4 September 1999
