Welcome to the Sumner Cemeteries web site. The purpose of this site is to provide basic cemetery information and pertinent notes so individual researchers will not have to “reinvent the wheel” by tracking down the same material that others have already found.

All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to info@vfthomas.com or mailed to “Sumner Cemeteries c/o V. F. Thomas Co.; 183 Pleasant St., Apt. 1; Canton, ME 04221”.

A little work by each of us will save a lot of work for all of us.
