The Islands: Wolfe Island: Tombstones: Christ Church Cemtery

Christ Chruch Cemetery Tombstones
Wolfe Island



Main road is to left of photo.


Photos taken May 13 2003 by Jen Wylie and Chris Morrell.
59 photos taken at the cemetery; 43 identified tombstones (some with multiple sides and photos), 6 unidentified tombstones, 6 of the general layout.





Location:
Concession XVI, Lot 6.
Turn left off of ferry onto Hwy, go through village and stay on main road. Lots of corners! If you have a copy of the 1878/80 tenants map you will see the church on Con XVI, lot six on the property of Jno Montogomery. Driving, the church is on the right hand side of the road, and not too far from the main road, it is on one of the many corners in the 14th, 15th line Rd area.


Main road is to right of photo. Back of Church.

There is a fence all around it, however the gates were not locked and we had no trouble getting in. The cemetery surrounds the small church, whose doors were locked.

The cemetery itself was well cared for, it looked like someone was digging up old stones and putting them to rights. There were some badly damaged stones, and a few I could not read. If anyone has older photos of these damaged stones please send them in!

Thank yous to Fern Small and Ken Collins for their transcriptions in 1972, as I referred to this book occasionally when stones were hard to read. I did find some errors in their transcriptions. Some transcriptions I could not find stones for, they are likely the transcriptions of the badly broken and faded stones.

If Iíve made any errors in transcription please drop me an email to let me know. Please feel free to send in any photos of stones that arenít here. Go ahead and download to your computer any of these photos for personal use.
