A letter dated May 2, 1999 from Robert S. Childs to the Chelsea Town Clerk says the cemetery is located just off Durkee Drive (Town Road 72), Not quite two tenths of a mile west of the intersection of Durkee Drive and County Road (Town Road 3) on the west side of Durkee Drive is a seasonal dwelling. The two headstones are about 20 feet from the north/west corner of that building and are about 7 feet westerly of the road.

There are two stones here. The first reads:

1801
Here rests the remains of Mr Stephen Boardman
who departed this life, Sept 3d 1801 in his 30 year

This slate stone has flaked off from the letter "r" in the word "year" to ground level.

The other headstone, also slate, has eroded to the point that only a letter "M" with the letters "Boa man" are readable.

Corwin Cemetery

From the intersection of VT Route 110 and VT Route 113 in the center of Chelsea village go east on Route 113 to Lyford Drive. The Corwin Cemetery is situated at the end of Lyford Drive on a side hill under two maple trees and is very difficult to reach. The landowner did escort me to the site but I would advise visitors to attempt to reach it only if they are in the best of health. There is no path to the cemetery, one must make their own trail through waist high weeds. The hill is steep and difficult to climb. The cemetery is about 1/4 mile from the farm buildings. There are two stones lying on the ground.

One stone reads:

        In memory of
        Mrs Mary
        wife of
        Daniel Blodgett
        who died Oct 29 1799

Wallace Cemetery

This cemetery will require the use of a local guide as it is located some distance in a wooded area 1/2 mile from a travelled road.

A letter dated May 9, 1999 from Robert S. Childs to the Chelsea Town Clerk says the cemetery is located off the Beedle Road (Town Road 59). Traveling in an easterly direction from the junction of T. R. 60 and T. R. 59, proceed to the first brook that crosses the road. Just before the brook on the left (northerly) is an old roadway. About 50 yards up this road is an old cellar hole on the left. Continue past the cellar hole staying on the old roadway for another 50 yards crossing an old stone culvert to a junction in the old roadway. Take the right fork (easterly) approximately 50 yards to the burial ground.

An alternate route, should the roadway become overgrown, is to travel easterly up the brook from T. R. 59 approximately 150 yards. The cemetery is located about 20 yards from the brook on the left (northerly) side.

The cemetery was rebuilt in the fall of 1998 by relatives of individuals buried here. They have removed the old stones and erected new granite stones as well as erecting a new picket fence about two feet in height.

Facing the stones and reading the stones left to right, the inscriptions are as follows:
