Contributor Note:  Jean Hankins of the Otisfield Historical Society has given me permission to code her "Otisfield Cemeteries Transcription Project".  Otisfield was originally part of Cumberland County, but seceded to Oxford County in 1978.  Transcribed in 1980 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.

From the Town Office at 403 State Route 121, go out the driveway and turn right.  Go aproximately 1/2 mile west.  Cemetery is on the right.  Parking is difficult, you can back into a small driveway just before the cemetery on the same side. Rock wall surrounding cemetery is "tender". Please be careful.

Numbers begin in front left, move in horizontal rows across.
