Southbeech Ridge Cemetery

circa 1800
Also known as the
Hawley Cemetery

Located South West of Clarenceville Quebec, Canada, on South Beech Road, just off route 202, going south towards the Alburgh Springs border crossing, (Alburgh-Swanton VT) about 1/4 mile north of Chemin Macfie and Middle Road crossing. This area was and is still known as Seigniory de Foucault, or Caldwell's Manor or Allard's Manor or the Parish of St George of Clarenceville..


The plot of farmland at this location was first used for the final resting place of Peter Hawley who died in 1800. This was the lot of land that was known as the Hawley Home , concession 9, lot 10 It must be realized that back in those times , births, marriages and deaths commonly ocurred with out the immediate blessing of a minister or priest. Not many records were kept other than those listed in the invdividual family bible. When indeed a roving, or saddle-bag minister passed through the area, gatherings would be held in the nearest home, or barn or in the field and any records that had been made by the individual familes may have been transferred to the minister for his save keeping. Many many records of this nature for the early periods of the Seigniory de Foucault, or Caldwell's Manor ( those including Noyan - Christie's Manor) have never been found registered any where.

The Cemetery on South Beech road , was at one time surrounded by an iron pole fence, and cedar trees. However as the last of the families (the majority English - Loyalists) moved away from farming and towards the town of Clarenceville and others (such as Bedford and the American cities) , the cemetery became dis-used, and unkept . The last Hawley, Clarence who lived next to the plot took care of the cemetery well into his senior years. Unfortunately by then a great many stones were broken and since there was no money for upkeep, as no family members continued to contribute to a dis-used cemetery, these broken stones were simply thrown in the back of the cemetery, creating a pile of rock. Some of the local farmers, now mostly French speaking, tried as they could to at least mow the grass, but as they kept breaking their machinery on fallen stones they lost interest and left the cemetery on it own.

There was a mise de jure dated 1993 12 -06 but did not indicate what  it was   so the company most likely is no ( 2014) defunct  

In 1981 , Robert Douglas Macfie and his son Eric rediscovered the old cemetery plot, they were looking for the burial place of Alexander Macfie , the first of their Macfie family to arrive in Canada. Finding Alexander's plot in very bad order, they managed to cut around the space occupied by Alexander and his wife Ann, and her parents. Cleaning just this small lot of grass appeared to them to be somewhat selfish, so they undertook to cut the whole cemetery, to take away the straw and to give the cemetery a decent appearance. This one time effort, continued and these two found themselves, four times a year, traveling from St. Lambert Quebec, to spend Saturday and Sunday mowing the grass at the cemetery.

This lead them to repairing a few of the stones, standing them up right and bracing some of them with metal holders, some they managed to re-cement and other they braced with wood. The up keep becoming an expensive project that at first they could little afford. Douglas and Eric then began to wonder if they was a register showing who was buried there, they hoped to be able to fix more of the stones, and thought if they had a list they could as least double check their work. Alas finding a listing proved a tedious undertaking. Since there was no one church associated with the cemetery, there was not one central location that contained the information. If a list was to be made, any and all records of the area would have to be verified, an enormous task, however some fortune was with them. Attending the Montreal Highland Games, in St. Lambert Que. in 1989, they were stopped at an exhibit when they heard a young man, Albert Smith of Iberville, explaining that he was in possession of much documentation of the area around Clarenceville. Sure enough when asked, he did have a list of the Hawley cemetery residents, a list made by a Mrs. Tremblay in 1957 or there abouts, of the stones that were still standing at that time. It was with pleasure that Douglas and Eric met with Mr. Smith in Iberville to take possession of this most wonderful piece of paper, a listing of the names of the persons who were buried in the Southbeech Ridge Cemetery - the Hawley Cemetery.

With this list in hand, new vigor was instilled in Eric and Douglas, reason to continue to work on the cemetery itself.

Right after this meeting, they came upon the address of Mrs. Beryl Moore, a daughter of Clarence Hawley, she had in her possession a small fund for the cemetery that had been started long ago and was accumulating interest in an attempt to increase the total to a sum that would be worthwhile and allow for some major work to be done.

Eric and Douglas, managed to find parts of the old fence (the original) that had been thrown in the weeds at the back, so they replaced some of the upright poles, repaired others and strung a white plastic chain across the front of the Cemetery. At least people would see that something was happening at that location. The next project was a sign to identify the Cemetery, Eric and Douglas recovered a wooden sign from a store which was closing. With a bit of work and some paint, they were able to create a reasonable identifying sign for the cemetery. One weekend they drove to the cemetery with this 20 foot pole sticking out of the back of the car and they sunk the sign post in to five feet of cement, to which they fixed the sign they had painted.

Now things were looking much better, the grass was being cut on a regular bases, if not regularly, there was a white fence, and sign pole. In October 1997, Eric and Douglas replaced the main gate, they had found the old gate the summer before and had taken it home to repair. Finally the cemetery had become a respectable looking resting spot for many of the long time residents of the area called Caldwell's Manor.

In 1998 Douglas moved from St. Lambert, taking up residence in Perth Ont., he was not not one hour away from Clarenceville, but 4 (four) hours traveling time. He did manage to get one weekend to travel down to cut the grass in 1998, but he had not been able to get back .

Update 1999

....A trip to Clarenceville August 14 1999 has provided us with a delightful surprise. The Cemetery grass had been cut, a ditch had been dug along the roadside, and a culvert with a gravel entrance had been added to the Cemetery . No one we spoke to was able to tell us who undertook this kind work, but we are certainly more than grateful to the benefactors who ever they might be .

Update 2009 .. An e mail received from Miss Vera Schoolcraft states - This benefactor was Raymond Kyling. Raymond is not related to the Hawley or the Maigars but did know the Maigars. He hired men to do a lot of work do to the disarray of the Cemetary. The ditches were dug by the gouvernment but there was no culvert put in to access the Cemetary. This may have been installed by Raymond . -- ( my gracious thanks are extened both to Vera for the information and certainly to Raymond for his efforts )

It has been understood that a local historical society group began the upkeep , however once they found that the cemetery was still being used to bury people they stopped .


The Town of Clarenceville has seen fit to support a project with the approval of the Ministry of Culture of Quebec, that would involve bringing this old historic cemetery back to its once proud luster. With the guidance of Louis Hak, an area councilor, the cemetery itself will be on the receiving end of some deserving refurbishing. Mr Hak would like to know if any readers of this page , who may have had a connection with the general area of Clarenceville might had pictures of the cemetery before its ruin. If there is any information that you care to share with the Town of Clarenceville regarding this cemetery they can be reached at

List of names taken from standing stones in 1957 or 1958 by Mrs. Georges (Beryl Hauver) Tremblay up dated with list of names that were recorded by Hugh and Malcolm McLellan, May 30th 1941 . ( An attempt will be made to link up the individual names to family web page so that a more complete history may be reviewed, however it must be understood that this will be an on-going project, as not every invidual has had a family member post a web page as of yet)

We must assume that most of the stones were still standing and readable at that time, so the list should be considered as accurate as we are going to have. There are burials after this time which still have to be confirmed and when this is done this list will be updated to that point in time. This list was provided to Doug Macfie, by Mr. Albert Smith, a genealogist , living in Iberville Que.

The deceased are posted in alphabetical order, the wife may be listed twice, once under her married name and again where possible under her maiden name.

Ages are shown in some cases as y- years : m-months : d-days

Due to the age of some of the stones and the deterioration some dates might not be exact , Additions to the original inscriptions in bold Green have been made by Douglas Macfie, as he finds more genealogical notes on the persons buried in this pleasant little cemetery . (his main family lines are done in bold red

As of April , year 2000 , I have obtained a listing of the cemetery stones made by Hugh and Malcolm McLellan, May 30th 1941. Copies of this list can be obtained from the Benjamin F Feinberg Library, Plattsburg State University of New York, 101 Broad St, Plattsburgh NY 12901.2681. There are some of the stones hand drawn by these two gentlemen.

An introduction to their list read

This Cemetery, overgrown and with many broken and fallen stones, is on the west side of the road running into Canada from Alburg Springs VT. It is shown on the Canadian Geological Map as a place named "NUTT". The cemetery has an iron and wire fence along the road. "

On a further page there is a hand written note

" I met Mr Clarence H L ( Henry Lancelot) Hawley May 30 /46, his father was David Frost Hawley and Annie L Rebuen (no stone), grandfather Ashel and Maria Frost, great grandfather Asahel and Mary Gibson, great great grandfather Peter and Hannah Partridge"

Cornelius Adle, enlisted in the 17th Regiment, Company A Vermont Volunteers, out of St Albans 1863, he died of disease 13 May 1865 and was buried in the Alexanderis National Cemeter, Virginia he was a private

Sarah A Boardman's inscription appears on the west side of the James Curtis/Anna Tuttle monument
Buel Landon married for a second time to Miriam Bingham Phelps 28/09/1854 in South Hero VT

Anna Tuttle married a first time to Johnathan Boardman

Mary Chadsey, according to the cemetery list made by Charles McClelland in 1941 would be buried next to he adopted son John J Howarth this was information that Mr Clarence Hawley provided, it woud be the unmarked marble stone next the John Haowarth's stone . Mary appears on the 1881 census living with her husband Hiram Edward who she married 21 Jan 1875. No date has been found (2004) for the death of Mary.

We must assume that Hiram Edward continued on alone after the death of his wife, and may have been buried in the St Armand area. We have found records showing Hiram at one time was listed as owner of lot 12 concession 3 , St. Thomas Parish (Noyan) Caldwell's Manor . (our records show that this lot at one time belonged to Mathais Emerick,) and lot 10 concession 6 ( Miranda) Caldwell's Manor ( which also belonged to Mathias Emerick )

John J Howarth would more than likley be a HOMEBOY , the inscription on his stone states that he was born in Preston England August 28th 1869. He does not however appear on the 1881 Canadian census with the Chadsey family of St Armand East.

Thankfull Clark, and Humphrey R Jewett , produced from the IGI records six children between 1814 and 1825 Emily Jewett marrying John Manning, and Angeline Jewett marrying George Sweet, no records have been found for the others, however it is noted that Humphrey (born 1788) died in 1856 in Delaware , Ohio. It must be assumed that he moved to live with one of his children .

William Cupples the son of William and Isabella is shown on the 1881 census records of living alone on his farm

Barnabas Decker , remarried Julia Elizabeth Deuel on 30 July 1867 , unable to loacte death date nor burial loaction of Lucy his first wife

Jedediah Irish , is recorded in the book of John Irsh and his family of being buried in the South Beech ( Hawley Cemetery) no record was made in any of the listings that I have found (2004) .. but in 1941, when the earliest list was made there were broken stones piled in the back of the cemetery, so it is very possible that Jedediah is buried here ( born 16-03 -1786 died 28-02-1872) son of John.

Henry Irish remarried Emily Hillman 05 June 1843

Johathan Irish married Almedia McIntosh 13 -03 -1850, following the death of his first wife Betsy Avery

Francis Manie took as his second wife Ann Kendal Smith 13 -11- 1842

There could be and most likely are others buried in this cemetery, however since there does not appear to be any official records for this particular lot, it is very difficult to confirm nor deny As time passes perhaps other familes will come forward with information that will allow us to up date this list , until then we can only assume certain facts. Taking all the census reports, the birth records and death records that are available we could assume that certain elders of the original families of the immediate area would have been placed in this plot, given the fact that there is no other record of thier burial location. Given also the fact that the first burial in this plot was in 1800,
which was many years before the first church was erected in the area of the Seiginory of Foucault - Caldwell's Manor.
