Wolfe Island



From back of cemetery facing sideroad.


Photos taken May 13 2003 by Jen Wylie and Chris Morrell.
104 photos taken at the cemetery, 2 photos from submissions;
64 identified tombstones (some with multiple sides and photos),
14 unidentified tombstones, 26 transcriptions with no stone,
8 photos of the general layout.





Location:
Concession XVIII, Lot 9.
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 XVIII, lot nine on the property of Wells Bamford. Driving, the cemetery 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. It is on 17th line. In a right turn corner is 17th line rd to the left (North). At the next corner (left turn) is the sign for 17th line rd to the right(towards the bay). There is a house just past the cemtery, which is on the left side of the side road.


The lily patch approx in center of cemetery. Side road is to right of photo.

There is an old wire fence around the one side and back of the cemetery, and piles of refuse etc along the water side. The front just has a metal railing across it. Is easy to get into, lots of places to park.

The cemetery itself was in fair condition. There were some badly damaged stones, and a few I could not read. Some stones are slowly sinking and being covered by sod. 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.
