North Sheldon Cemetery

The Beers map of 1871 shows the location of this rural cemetery in a small but seemingly prosperous North Sheldon. Note on the map, focused on the four corners that are now the intersection of Rte. 105 and Rte. 120, such items as a Post Office, a School, the cemetery, Continental Springs, a cheese factory and one or two depots along with many residents of Fish and Gallup.

The North Sheldon Cemetery, visited in August 2018, remains at the same location and is fairly well maintained. The full listing of 46 memorials can be found at Find a Grave.

The earliest burial date we could find, date of death Feb 26, 1894, was for that of Jedediah Clark, Jr. was the son of Jedediah Clark, Sr. and Susannah Smith. He was married to Est(h)er Smith, his first cousin, daughter of Elihu Smith and Onor Slade.

The last burial date we could find, dated April 21, 1965 was for that of Hazel M. Ellis Wilder, born in NY May 3, 1883 and died in St. Albans at the age of 81

In 1905 and again in 1906 a group of Sheldon residents complained to the then Selectmen, named in the document, about the poor condition of the cemetery. A copy of the original document appears below.
