Old Protestant Burying Ground

The committee for The Old Protestant Burying Ground [1784-1873] on Elm Avenue now called University Avenue is busy. We have promised "To Restore' Remember and Reflect". Rev. Gordon Matheson is the chair and a lot of work has been done already. If you have the time you should drop in and see the wonderful job Joaquim Da Fonseca, our top masonry restoration man, has done on the two Jarvis sarcophagi. Committee member George Wright is organizing, in fine fashion, the information on those buried there. It is clear not all the stones remain by a long shot, but if we learn from church records and old newspapers we can always add names to the memorial list. This cemetary is one of the province's most profound historical experiences.
