Removals to Island Cemetery, many 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 100 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

Note: First burial in Island Cemetery was 6 June 1890.

We have updated our “Removals” list to give each of these people their own webpage, just like the Residents of our three cemeteries. As we develop the webpages, we’ll fill in the known information about each person to the best of our knowledge. If you have any other information you’d like to share, we would love to hear from you!

The information below is from our research and the Burial book of the Port Maitland and Beaver River Cemetery, as transcribed by George Snow and Bill Curry.

List of Removed Persons – clicking on the name will give you that person’s webpage. We are adding information as we get it to these pages and would welcome additional information!

  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.

  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:
    Thanks, Susan
