Removals

Removals to Island Cemetery, possibly from Old Beaver River and Port Maitland  Cemeteries

The Records of the area’s currently active cemetery, the Port Maitland and Beaver River Cemetery (also known as Island Cemetery), show that some 80 or so people were “removed” from their former burial sites and interred in the current cemetery. It appears as if the earliest of these removals occurred in 1892, 2 years after the “new” cemetery opened in 1890. The Society is beginning to discover research that indicates many of these people were removed from one of the three historic cemeteries under the Society’s care. We would love to have information about any of these “former residents” if someone knows where a person was first buried.

The current cemetery is located at: Coordinates: 43°59’39″N   66°8’22″W

  1. I note that Sophia Perry. (should of course be Parry) has no maiden name. I am sure it is Lewis but who her father is I have no proof. She is in the school records for sure. This is my most irksome brick wall.

  2. Also baby Ethel Trask (removals) is Alice Ethel daughter of Israel and MARETTA (not Henrietta) Trask. Only girl among nine boys. Stuart’s grandfather Frank’s sister. see page 101 “Their Succeeding Race”

  3. Hi Gwen-
    Thanks for the notes. This list of removals was recorded by someone at a date after the removals all happened and needs corrections such as you have provided. I corrected some Curry and Goudey records as well myself, and the Society welcomes input from people who have information on this fascinating aspect of the cemeteries.
    Thanks again for sending along your information.
    Bill

  4. Hi Bill, According to the “Cemetery Transcriptions from the NEHGS Manuscript Collection” both David P. Corning 1814-1876 and Mary Anne (Perry) Corning 1826-1858 were buried in the Free Baptist Cemetery. We they removed to the Beaver River/Port Maitland Cemetery? They are listed as being there by Robert F. McKinnon on his Yarmouth county website: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nsyarmou/Port_Maitland_Cem.htm
    Thanks, Susan
