Cemetery Listing - Passumpsic Cemetery - Old Section (North of Access Road)

After Miss Powers death in 1985, her documentation for the Passumpsic Cemetery was not available so in the summer of 2004 I undertook a project to document the cemetery using a plat survey dated 1917. That map laid out the cemetery by sections. A few years later I found she had documented the cemetery and I obtained a copy of her work. In her document, the dividing line between the old cemetery and the beginning of the newer sections was confusing so this table is built  on my work. She had not used the 1917 map.

This listing contains that portion of the old cemetery that lies north of the access road.

Facing the cemetery from US Route 5, the oldest section lies on both sides of the access road. Row numbers begin at the fence near US Route 5 and progress towards the rear of the cemetery. Grave numbers for the most part begin at the entrance road and progress towards the north fence. I have used the Stone # format as PONn (Row #) - n.n (Stone # in row). The decimal point signifies that there are multiple names on one stone.

An asterisk identifies information obtained from Waterford vital records or Cemetery Records. A double asterisk indentifies information derived from the Goss family history.
