Petty Point — Eaton

Deer Isle, Maine:  On Mountainville Road, go 1.5 miles from the turn.  Go up Hard Scrabble Road by Nervous Nellie’s Jams and Jellies.  Go down Margot Lane on your right, then follow the private drive down to the bottom of the hill.  Take a right by the big rock and go straight in.

After Peter came to "Ring Town" (southeast end of Mountainville) from Bear Island, it could not have been very long before he decided to locate a burying lot for the family near where he took up his new abode.  Thus we find an Eaton lot on the “Sam Petty Point” and located between the water of Pickering’s Cove and where Sam Petty left his cellar on the slope.  This yard is located between what is called “Hard Scrabble” hill and the point above mentioned.  The plot seems to be divided in the middle; the north half of the yard is devoted to Peter Eaton and descendants while the southern half of the yard appears to have been reserved for members of the John B. Eaton family.  John B. died nearly blind and was buried in this lot since I [Montelle Small?] visited the spot.
