From Coaticook at the junction of routes 141 and 147 continue east past the light and take the first right which is Desrosiers Street, also called 9th Range Road. Stay on this road for about 10 km. You don't need to go into the town of Saint Hérménigilde. Watch for Huot Road (Ch Huot) on your left. The cemetery is on the left side of the road just past Huot Road at the top of the hill in a grove of trees.
This area was once known as Perryboro. The area consists of farms and woods. This abandoned cemetery with its one tombstone is in a pasture and I had to cross a fence and dodge cows and cow manure to get to the location. The one stone is broken in half but legible. It is very tricky to spot from the road. I do not know if there are others buried here.
I visited and read this cemetery on Oct 25, 2007.
