YOUNG/ELLIOT Cemetery

                                                Mercer, Maine

 

 

Located on the Sandy River Road - adjacent to an old farm with double barns on the opposite side of the road.  This cemetery was once fenced; probably on the farm where one family lived.  Overgrown with several broken stones from trees falling on them.  In a pine grove.
