Botwood - OLDEST METHODIST CEMETERY IN BOTWOOD

These headstones were read, recorded and transcribed by Calvin Evans & formatted by Bev. Warford. While we have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there may be typographical errors.
Notes:
Located behind Stan Young's house on Church Road. All headstones are flat on the ground and the fence has fallen down. It would be possible to reconstruct names of other persons buried there from the earliest Methodist Burial Records. Comments with an * have been added by the transcriber, Calvin Evans.
