Contributor Note:  Jean Hankins of the Otisfield Historical Society has given me permission to code her "Otisfield Cemeteries Transcription Project".  Otisfield was  riginally part of Cumberland County, but seceded to Oxford County in 1978.  The old section was transcribed in 1980, and the new section in 1994, by Jean F. Hankins, Scribner Hill Press, Scribner Hill Road, Otisfield, ME.  Scanned for the Web in 1999 by Marilyn M. Strout, 58 Bean Road, Otisfield.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Directions:  From the Otisfield Town Office at 403 State Route 121, go out of the driveway and turn right. Go all the way to the stop sign at Spurr’s Corner (approximately 2 1/2 miles.  Turn left and continue on SR 121 for 1 mile.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Arrangement:      Old part of cemetery (south) is recorded first.  It consists of three sections, each of which is numbered left-right, front to back, beginning with front left corner.  The new section is officially "open." New Fence was added in the Fall of 2004 along the front of SR 121.
