Old McNickle Cemetery


I took the road north out of the village of Rockport and then a left on to Holland Road. The cemetery can be reached at the end of a long lane south from Holland Road. It is on the west side of the house where the Sherwoods live. The G.P.S. location is N4424.244 W7557.447, as recorded by Jack Brown, 16 Oct. 2003 when he checked the cemetery.

It is only 75-100 ft from the house and is on a side hill that has been backfilled so as to make it level. There is a broken stone (I assume the original since Jack Brown got a date from it for John J's death) and footstones, but it was cold and raining and I just photographed the four I saw and they appear to be one for each child named on the main stone.
