About 1/4 mile east on US Route 302 from the Town Offices there is a driveway to the right. This appears to be the entrance to the cemetery but will need to be verified.
From the intersection of US Route 302 and TV Route 25, go west about 1/10 mile to Clement Road on the right. The cemetery appears to be about 3/10 mile up this road.
Going west on US Route 302 through Orange, there will be a couple of downhill turns before the road levels out. On the right there will be a road towards Plainfield and it may be signed as Reservoir Road. About 2-3/4 miles up this road (you will have passed the Barre Reservoir) take the left fork. It may be signed as Bisson Road. Go up this road about 1-1/10 miles to a four way intersection. This is Cutler's Corners and the cemetery should be visible.
The best approach to East Orange seems to be from VT Route 25. From the intersection of US Route 302 and VT Route 25, go south about 3-1/10 miles to West Topsham then another 1-1/2 miles to the East Orange turn. Turn onto the East Orange road and go for about 1-1/2 miles to East Orange. The cemetery is about 200 feet north of the church.
From East Orange village, go north on Fish Pond Road about 1/2 mile to Rock Pl. Go up Rock Pl about 1/10 mile up this road. The cemetery is on the righthand side of the road immediately past a house on the right..
From the intersection of US Route 302 and VT Route 25, go west on US Route 302 about 1-1/2 miles to Riddell Pond Road. Go south on Riddell Pond Road about 1/2 mile to Peake Cemetery Road. While visiting the site on May 30, 2012, I decided that only a four wheel vehicle would be able to travel the Peake Road. Members of the Town of Orange Selectboard had visited the cemetery and had taken GPS readings which they kindly permitted me to use. It appears the cemetery is located about 3/10 mile along Peake Road and then 1/8 mile into the woods by foot. The stone marks the grave site of Samuel Richardson.
This cemetery is about 1-1/3 miles north of East Orange village on Fish Pond
Road and is a single stone about ten feet from the left side of the road. If you
reach a wide spot on the right side and the road narrows past that wide spot,
you have gone about 100 feet too far. The stone reads:
Their son James
Going west on US Route 302 through Orange, there will be a couple of downhill turns before the road levels out. On the right there will be a road towards Plainfield and it may be signed as Reservoir Road. About 2-3/4 miles up this road (you will have passed the Barre Reservoir) take the right fork. This is still Reservoir Road. Go up this road about 1-2/10 miles to Smith Road on the right. Burial site is near 164 Smith Road.
