Avery Family Cemetery **

Although I was advised that the best way into the Avery Cemetery was via the Harold White Road, I found that road dead-ended about 1/4 mile from the Topsham-Corinth Road in a driveway. During the followup visit, I met the landowner who very graciously showed me the stone. He explained that the stone is on private property, is a recently created stone and was placed there by the previous owner. There is no record of the disposition of the original stones. Visitors are asked to obtain the landowners permission to visit the stone.

The stone is flush to the ground and reads:

In Memory of
Andrew Avery   1796-1864
Nancy Avery   1801-1848
Samey F. Avery   1863-1869
Early Resident of Glen Green

Turn left onto Swamp Road and go about 6/10 mile to Powers Road. Turn right onto Powers Road and go about 6/10 mile to Currier Hill Road. Turn sharply right onto Currier Hill Road and go about 3/10 mile. Currier Hill Road is best suited for a four wheel drive vehicle although regular vehicles might be able to drive in the road given dry conditions.

Go up Watson Hill Road about 1-2/10 miles to a sharp bend to the right (a road intersects from the left). Continue about 4/10 mile to Spooner Road on the right. Turn right onto Spooner Road and go about 3/10 mile. The Fellows Hill Cemetery appears to be directly across from Dunnack Drive and is on the right at the top of the hill.

Groton Road Cemetery (Bixby)

The cemetery is about 1-3/4 miles east of the intersection of US Route 302 and VT Route 25 and is on the right side of US Route 302.

Huckins-Caldwell Hill Cemetery

This cemetery is situated a considerable distance from a travelled road and may be reached by a trail suitable only for a four wheel drive vehicle with high clearance or an ATV. It is strongly advised that the visitor contact a local guide.

The stone is very difficult to read but it appears to read:

In the 69th Year of His Birth
