Case Cemetery, Route 17, East Readfield

This cemetery is actually in Readfield near the Manchester town line. 
I am including it here because several North Manchester settlers are buried here.
Entering the cemetery, to the right are two large flat stones with a marble slab on top, enclosed by granite pillars, which are connected with iron rods. These are the graves of Rev.Isaac Case and his wife, Joanna. The story of their lives may be read there. Their graves also mark the spot where Elder Case preached for so many years from the pulpit of the Baptist Church of Christ in Readfield. This church was built in 1793, and was later moved to North Manchester, Scribner Hill Road, where it is known today as the North Manchester Meeting House.
