Total records = 4.
From Route 1: Turn SW onto the Ayers Junction Rd (directly beside the post office) At the end of the Rd. (abt. 1/10th of a mile) turn right onto the Old County Rd. IMMEDIATELY after turning onto the Old County Rd take a left onto the Leighton Point Rd. Travel 3.3 miles, turn right onto the Clarkside Rd. At the end of the Clarkside Rd, turn Left onto the Reversing Falls Rd (dirt road). Travel 1.5 miles where the road forks, veer right From there it's only 1/10th of a mile to the turn - around, the cemetery is located off to the right.
The small cemetery has been roped off on the right side of the Reversing Falls turn - around where the Falls can be viewed, in Pembroke, Maine.
The tombstones are quite worn, the bottom half of John Holland's tombstone has been broken into chunks, the top half has been propped up. The half containing the information for Sarah ?? is gone, however, set up against a post is a section of a stone with some information on it. It reads: "1860, 67 years". I am unsure whether or not this piece goes with the bottom half of John's stone. It's thought that stones have been stolen from this small graveyard.
