Who is Buried Here ?

There are very few headstones in Cumberland County with death dates prior to 1800, even though French settlements were being established more than 100 years earlier. Many of those early settlers as well as those who died as a result of the battles for supremacy fought between the French and English lie in unmarked graves. With the development of communities and religious groups came structured burial grounds and more complete death records. In community, church and family cemeteries the oldest burials include Acadians, Planters, Yorkshiremen, Loyalists and slaves. A common death date for several members of the same family was often the result of fire or diseases such as the influenza epidemic. Wars and mine disasters are reflected in the death dates of miners and veterans.
