Mystic Quebec

Thanks Bev!

Mystic is just north of Bedford. Not sure how many kilometers. The Vaughan Cemetery is just up the road from a Roman Catholic church which has the "Union Cemetery" right beside it and the Vaughan Cemetery can be seen from the road. It is a small hill in a farmer's field with barbed wire around it and a gate. You have to first go through a gate into the farmer's field and walk a bit to the mound (hill) where the cemetery is. Looks like it is maintained as the grass seems to be cut. Not sure if the Vaughan cemetery is one of them. I have photos of the Vaughan cemetery from different angles as well. There is a barn and a silo a short way from the cemetery mound.

Elmer W. Corey

There is an Ada E. Corey 1881- 1964 who was married to a George A. Bockus 1884-1962. Not sure if she is related to the other Coreys in the Vaughan Cemetery. Ada and George are both bured at the Union Cemetery in Mystic.

I have visited the cemetery as some of my relative are buried there. I  have taken photos of most of the gravestones and marked down names and dates.

Some of the gravestones are in bad shape and not readable and others are broken in half.
