PEABODY CORNER CEMETERY

NEW VINEYARD, FRANKLIN COUNTY, MAINE

This information was provided to me by Elaine Wells, who is related to the Adams

Family who is buried in this Cemetery.  She felt that people should know there are

actually two separate cemeteries at this location - not one whole as indicated by the

entry of McLain-Peabody.

GOING NORTH ON ROUTE 27 BETWEEN NEW VINEYARD, MAINE AND WEST NEW PORTLAND, MAINE, TURN LEFT AT STUMP POND AND TAYLOR HILL ROAD. TRAVEL ABOUT 1 MILE TO PEABODY CORNER, TURN LEFT AND FIND THE CEMETERY ALMOST IMMEDIATELY ON YOUR RIGHT IN A FIELD. PASS THROUGH A GATE AND FIND THE CEMETERY SURROUNDED BY A SPLIT-RAIL FENCE WITH RED MAPLES, LILACS AND ROSES AROUND THE PERIMETER. IT HAS A LARGE IRISH CELTIC CROSS CENTERED AGAINST THE BACK FENCE.
