Search Charles Hill Cemetery:

This cemetery was named for Charles Hill, son of Ambrose Hill (who is buried here) and grandson of Simeon Hill who deeded the land in 1816 to "the inhabitants of the northeast part of Waterford . . . $14 . . . for the purpose of a place to bury their dead in".

Stones are oriented so as to be readable when facing the farmhouse to the northeast, vs. deceased facing east.

To reach this cemetery, turn off US Rte 2 (about 2 mi east of St Johnsbury) onto Vt Rte 18, at the top of the steep hill, just before the I-93 entrance ramp, turn right onto Higgins Hill Road (dirt). The cemetery is on the left, across Gingue's field, a few hundred yards southwest of Vt Rte 18. There is a farm road leading past the cemetery to a red polebarn, the Cemetery Gate is on the side facing the town road.

Stone discriptions and observations were written by Eugenia Powers ca.1980. Several stones appear to have been moved since Eugenia drew her 1980 map, including three footstones, now set in cement, that are now in line with, but no longer next to, their respective headstones, q.v.
