One of my husbands favourite hobbies is to go out on his ATV. While out with his friends they came across this small cemetery in the middle of the woods. I was thrilled when he informed me of this and together we made a trip out there to take pictures and transcribe the stones. I'm looking for help on giving this cemetery it's original name. I'll be looking forward to hearing from anybody with knowledge of this cemetery.    Thanks!

As we're hiking into the woods we can barely make out the little cemetery through the trees.

 

The closer we get the better we can make out the few headstones. We found stakes clearly showing the cemetery boundaries. We believe this is frequented by moose as we found "a lot" of moose droppings near and in the cemetery area.
