Residents – Founders, Free Will Baptist and Calvinist Baptist Cemeteries

The Society is providing here a set of links to each resident in any of the three cemeteries. Clicking on any name below to brings you to that person’s individual information site, where we have also provided profile information and a Family Group file index link, which leads to an index including that person.

The Old Beaver River and Port Maitland Cemeteries Preservation Society is working on plain language and genealogical information for each resident.  The profiles will eventually all be descriptive of what we know about the person, and will also contain the information researchers would like to know. If you know something about a person buried in one of the cemeteries, we’d love to hear from you. If your research is helped by this website, we’d also love to know.

  1. I am looking for any MacCrae’s/McCrae’s/McRae’s buried in this vicinity between 1850 and 1925. I have ancestors buried at Darlings Lake Cemetery, but the sons and daughters or grandchildren of William and Lydia McCrae (buried at Darlings Lake Cemetery) seem to be nowhere, although I have records that some have died in Short Beach. Are there any other unlisted or neglected cemeteries around Short Beach other than Darlings Lake Cemetery?
