Edminster Cemetery is located near the village of Cornish in New Hampshire and though it seems to be out in the country a good distance it’s well maintained and still in use. It contains both historic graves as well as some quite recent. The Edminsters buried in this cemetery are descended from John Edminsteire through his son James and grandson William. A complete history of the line is included in “The Edminster Family in America” by Frank Custer Edminster, Jr. published in 1965. For anyone interested in visiting the Edminster Cemetery, consult MapQuest or another mapping service for directions to the community. It’s a lovely area.
Here’s a sign near the cemetery entrance, there’s also a road sign “Edminster Cemetery Road.”
