Niagara Township

Ten Anglican Cemetery / Old Homer Cemetery

Ten Anglican Cem, Homer, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Lincoln Co.  The cemetery is located almost under the QEW which arches up in the air at that point; you can't get at it on the QEW - you have to be on Hwy/ Rd 81 heading from St. Catharines east towards Niagara Falls; it is on the right side of the highway almost as you leave St. Catharines, cross a small bridge and there it is - a parking strip with a set of steps leading up to the old cemetery. We went barreling right by it the first time and had to ask & turn around.

Wm Havens Memorial - This monument which lies flat on the ground, tells us that in 1638 William Havens was in Aberyswuth, Wales.  He was in Portsmouth, Rhode Island in 1658.  Later he moved to New
Jersey with 6 children.  In 1783 Wm's gr-grandson William with his wife Lydia (Masters) and 6 children came from Anderson, Gloucester Co, NJ, and settled on Lot 8 Concession 7 of Grantham Tp, Lincoln Co.

This an important record of the origins of this family who came as UELs to the Niagara area.  William & Lydia were the proprietors of a grist mill in Anderson, and William would not join the local Patriot militia for the Revolution. They packed up what they could carry, and rode or walked cross-country the 500 miles.

Thanks to Carol Morrow for the photos and information!
