Combined Cemeteries
Little Cranberry Island, Maine

The following table lists, in alphabetical order by family name, all persons known to be buried on Little Cranberry Island.  It includes the following cemeteries up to the dates indicated:

Stanley/Hadlock Cemetery (20 May 1974)
Stanley/Gilley Cemetery (4 Nov 1973)
Sandbeach Cemetery (15 Aug 1994)
Sawtelle Cemetery Plot (1 Jul 1999)
Catholic Cemetery (17 Jul 1999)
Rhees Cottage Plot (grave of Helen Rhees Ham) (11 May 2000)
Maypole Point Plot (grave of John Standley)

As far as we know, there are no missing cemeteries or gravesites.  The only correction(s) needed are for people who died after the reports were generated (the dates above.)  The table is combined from reports prepared by the late Francis Stanley, (1973-74), by Hugh Dwelley (1994), by Bob Pyle (1999), and by Mary Taylor (1999).  Any suspicious data is noted.

I suspect some information listed here is not actually on the stones, but has been added from local knowledge of the reporter.
