The above pictures  show a type of tree, not found anywhere in the St Margarets Bay area. They were bought here as seedlings from New Brunswick,  by merchant Mr  Hubley Sr. in his vessels, and used as a border around this small cemetery, they have since spread out to the surrounding area.

The cemetery listing, as provided to me was as follows, (September 1998) - there are no markers .....
