HALL'S CORNER CEMETERY  -  N44.37276 x W69.07500
History of Belmont p527: The cemetery is in the woods, 2 1/2 poles down the Power line, on the Northport side of the power lines, in the edge of the woods. Overgrown with trees and brush. There is a rumor in the section of Hall's Corner, that several years ago, the owners of a house, afterwards called "Flip-Tail Ranch", used some of the gravestones from the small cemetery to make a water drainage ditch. There may be stones under dirt and debris. 6 stones found. - Isabel & Bob Maresh late 1970s. 2012: Walking down the power lines from Northport road is impossible and swampy. Drive .45 miles on Northport Rd from corner of Halls Corner Rd to first large house. Getting permission (off-season) from this or the next house, go through the commercial blueberry fields behind the house and towards the power lines through fields until you reach a pathway into the woods. Cemetery is on the right, and the power lines are also visible.  2 slate, 4 marble stones.
