Gisla Cemetery
Milan, Frontenac County, Quebec

Contributed by Leslie Nutbrown, Jul 13, 2005, last edited Jul 25, 2006 [lnutbrown@videotron.ca]. Total records = 163.

This small cemetery is located on Gisla Road near Milan, Quebec. From Route 214 heading east toward Scotstown and near the Donald Morrison Village, take Gisla Road about 3 miles. Caution: this gravel road winds through a forest, and is very narrow. Suddenly the cemetery will appear in a clearing on the right. If you visit here in the summer, be wary of mosquitos and black flies.

This cemetery is the final resting place of Scottish settlers who left their homes on the Isle of Lewis, in the Hebridean Islands, Scotland. Buried here is Donald Morrison, (known as the Megantic Outlaw) who became a legendary figure in Eastern Canada.

Susan Nutbrown and I visited this cemetery in Jun of 2005, and we have transcribed from all existing and legible tombstones or markers.
