The Old Beaver River and Port Maitland Cemeteries Preservation Society has been working on the construction of a website that will not only inform all of our progress in maintaining and preserving the cemeteries themselves, but we are also interested in the educational aspects of the old cemeteries, including biographies of the residents and genealogical information about the families. To that end, we have created a list of each of the residents and have provided a link to each resident that will bring up their own unique “page”. On this Virtual Burying Ground website will be displayed the marker in the cemetery associated with the resident and biographical and genealogical information where known about each person.
There are three cemeteries the Society has been working on – Founders Cemetery, Free Will Baptist Cemetery and the Calvinist Baptist Cemetery. The Residents list is alphabetical for the residents in any of the cemeteries, and each cemetery has a plot map and some information on our website. You may see this information by clicking on the Home button and then scrolling across the black bar at the top of this page.
We are very interested in receiving feedback, comment for questions about our efforts. Please feel free to e-mail us or leave a note below.
