Northfield Cemetery
Northfield Canton, Ottawa County, Quebec, Gatineau Valley, Canada

New December 1, 2003:
    Several years ago I recorded the burials in the Northfield Cemetery. This 
cemetery is a small Protestant cemetery in Northfield Canton about 3 to 4 
miles south of Bouchette on the east side of the Gatineau River. I thought it 
would compliment the other cemetery listings in Gracefield and Maniwaki. 

My Great-grandmother Isabella Turney is buried there and I think that my great 
grandfather William  Cleland (1831-1914) is buried there.
