Waldo County Cemeteries
With locations and published
FROM A FRIENDLY VILLAGER
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

earliest settlers are buried here. Many stones damaged or missing. On the north side of
US202/St Rte 9 just east of Troy Corner and across from Troy Union Church.

west of the Dixmont Town Line.
[Ralph Hillman's Note:
There are quite likely one or two
other small family cemeteries that have been lost from memory. If anyone finds these
locations I would like to know. A Barker Cemetery is quite likely east of Barker Road in
the woods about at the junction of Bishop Road. A Bennett Cemetery was somewhere along the
east shore of Unity Pond west of Smart's Corner. [Check] DeLorme's The Maine Atlas and
Gazetteer for names of roads and locations. I have data from most of these cemeteries
if people wish to contact me.]
