Cemetery Discovered in Sumner

An old cemetery has been located off Estes Road in West Sumner.
A skidder ran through what was believed to have been a cemetery because the site had three stone walls and a base stone.
Resident Jim Durfee said the area was a cemetery in the 1800s but remains could have been moved since the cemetery was not shown on later maps.
[Land owner Dennis] Biron said he had heard that the remains had been moved during the Work Projects Administration days in the 1930s.
