Swan Cemetery

                                                               New Sharon, Maine

 

                 Directions: From Farmington, go East on Route 2 & 27 to New Sharon.  Just

                    before the bridge that crosses the Sandy River, take a left onto Route 134 toward

                    Starks.  This cemetery is located on the left about two miles from the intersection.

                    Surrounded by a granite wall.  Stones are deteriorating because of quality of the

                    marble.  Some impossible to read.

 

                    NOTE:  This cemetery was transcribed in the early 1960's by Dorothy Wirth.  Her records are in

                         the Farmington Public Library; by comparing what I found in April 2005 to what Mrs. Wirth found

                         in the 1960's, I was able to provide the following information.  Note to DW refer the Mrs. Wirth's

                         dates found. Her narrative on the page said she had spoken with Mrs. Allen, a neighbor to the cemetery

                         and Mrs. Allen told her the Swans were Quakers from Philadelphia.
