Compton County, Quebec

From the town of Compton, take Hatley Road (Chemin d'Hatley) Route 208 about a mile and then take Dion Road on your left. Continue on this gravel road. You will cross under a railway overpass and the cemetery is not far from here on your left.
The land for this cemetery was donated and dedicated for use as a cemetery by Abigail and Robert Doak, in memory of their son George W Doak in 1829.
This cemetery was repaired by members of the Doak family at their own expense. It was fenced off and is bordered by a farmer's field. A wall made of brick was erected in 1983 and the old stones embedded in the wall. Some of the bricks in the wall have begun to crumble already.
I visited this cemetery in July of 2005, transcribing from all existing and legible tombstones or markers.- Leslie Nutbrown
