I've been told that graves either faced East or West. If they face East they were there to welcome the Lord when he came back, and if they faced West they were heading home to the Lord.

6/18/2000:  If you plan to visit a cemetery, please read the following Cemetery Guidelines to help make your visit more enjoyable

From 1973 to 1994, Jean Hankins laborously sat among the tombstones in Otisfield and transcribed each and every one!  As of this date (20 June 2000) they have not been converted to web page language (HTML).  They are, however, available for viewing as plain text files at the US GenWeb Archives.
 Please realize that in a Tombstone Transcription Project, tombstones are TRANSCRIBED EXACTLY AS THEY APPEAR! (This includes mistakes and all).

3/23/2000:  Shirley Bean    advised that the Shed Family Burial Ground was moved from Shed Hill on the Bean Road,  to the East Otisfield Cemetery, by William Spurr, sometime during the 1950s.  Shed Photos Added Oct 1, 2000

However, if you find an error, please send me an email and I will see to it that it is corrected in our records.
