To get to the Blanchard cemetery, from the village of
Ways Mills, take Isabelle Road to Provencher Road. The cemetery is on Provencher
Road on your left very near a farm house.
You will have to be
observant as the tiny cemetery could be hidden from the road by field growth depending
on the time of year. I stopped at the farm (French speaking family) and asked
to go to the cemetery and there was no problem as it is only a short walk from
This small family cemetery is one of several rural cemeteries
in this county that is surrounded by a farm. The cemetery is maintained by the
Barnston Heritage Cemetery Corporation.
I walked and read this cemetery
in in May, 2006.
