Location. UTM: 19T 0563202, 4915188; Lat./Long.: N 44°23′14.0″ x W 68°12′23.4″

Directions. From the intersection of Routes 3 and 102/198 at the north end of Mount Desert Island (just after you cross the bridge from Thompson Island), bear left on Route 3. Travel approximately 10.1 miles to a stop sign where Route 3 makes a right-angled turn to the left. Make this turn—this portion of Route 3 is called Mount Desert Street—and the cemetery is on the left between two churches in 0.3–0.4 miles.

History.

Notes. Letters and numbers on marble stones of this cemetery are much more worn than those in other cemeteries. Many unengraved pieces of stones once laying together at one side of the cemetery have been removed. During November of 1998, many stones that were laying on the ground were stood up. Broken stones were repaired using epoxy that was not modified to match the color of the stone. In a few cases, some letters and/or numbers on a stone were obscured by the repair work.

Notes:
   1Stone worn.
   2Different on different stones.
   3Dates on both stones are worn but appear to be legible. Also, the relationship of H. Emery as son of a John and Margaret is legible. Other sources will be necessary to clarify this anomaly.
   4Remainder of stone below ground.
   5Stone cracked and/or broken.
   6This is now obscured by material used during the 1998 repair of stones in this cemetery.
   7Metal marker bearing death date has been removed from the plaque.
   8Number of years appears to be "1", but the number is followed by "yrs".
   9Although spelling of Zacheus and Zackeus suggests otherwise, the 1850 census of Eden indicated that Sarah's husband was approximately 3 years older than her, thereby making him Zackeus HIGGINS.
   10Number of months appears to be "1", but the number is followed by "mos.".
   11An examination of the 1860 census record for the town of Eden (now Bar Harbor) indicated that the surname for Katie, Alfred S., and Lewis A. is DAY.
