Burials

Welcome to the FCIC site


Forest City International Cemetery

Forest City Road, Forest City, York Co, NB


At one time, both Forest City, NB and Forest City, Maine, had their own separate burial sites. Likely because the "two" communities were in reality one community staddling the international boundry it only made sense to combine the two cemeteries. When this actually occurred is unknown, but likely in the late 1800's or early 1900's.

At the entrance to the present day cemetery is a monument consisting of three granite grinding wheels salvaged from the old Grist Mill set on a concrete base with a plaque reading "In memory of Dr. Lyman A Lydic, 1978". Flags of both countries fly overhead.

Over the years attempts have been made to document and record the burials without achieving any definitive list. Wallace (Wally) Hale came about as close as anyone with his publication of York County cemeteries in 1982. This page draws heavily on that work as well as including updated information done by myself on May 20, 2001. Although the exact number may never be known, there are many burials done beyond living memory for which there is no record or grave marker. For example, David PATTERSON is believed buried here but with the lapse of nearly 100 years, no one is left alive to remember. Some burials are recorded in various diaries kept by members of the community; a few ministers kept journals of funerals they conducted. But, generally, there is nothing in the way of a methodical recording of who, when or where. So, just because the name you are looking for isn't on the list, doesn't mean they aren't buried in Forest City.

The italicized comments in square brackets are mine based on personal knowledge.
