Directions: From Route 1 take the turn onto South Meadow Road to the left of the Perry Farmers Union store. Follow the South Meadow Road until you cross a small concrete bridge. The bridge crosses Boyden Stream. Take the Golding Road which bears to the right. Look for a sign for Leland cemetary on your left. Take the dirt road to the cemetery.
George M. Mullin was one of 91 men, from Perry, who served in the Union Army during the Civil War. Of the 91 men who served, 43 died, including George M. Mullin. Of those, 28 died of disease, and one died in captivity at Andersonville prison. During the war George M. Mullin served in the 6th Maine regiment and 2nd Maine cavalry.
At the front entrance of the cemetery look across, at 260 degrees, for a large maple tree towards the back of the cemetery. A small American flag, near the base of the tree, marks the headstone of George M. Mullin. Retrace your steps and return to the front cemetery gate. Before leaving the cemetary you will see a small spruce tree on your left inside the fence. The box can be found there.
