SYLVESTER CEMETERY
Palermo, Maine

The Cemetery is located aprox 1/2 mile south of the intersection of Nelson Lane and Parmeter Road in Palermo. It should also be noted that it was well off the road and located in a large commercial blueberry field. The particular field in question (as the entire field spanned both sides of the road) would be located to the western side just beyond the crest of the hill and a little northwest. I may have missed some graves as it was severely overgrown and in poor shape. I had to move brush and briars to get at some of the markers.
