Willow Grove Cemetery

Louisbourg, Cape Breton County, NS

September 24, 1997

Copied by John A.C. Wilson 24 Sept. 1997
Introductory Note: This listing was done by groups of tombstones, where it was obvious they were connected. The letters b), c) etc refer to a separate tombstone in that group. I have also chosen to list them beginning, where possible, with the oldest family members. This listing, while checked for accuracy with my notes, has not been double-checked with the tombstones. As a result, there are several errors and/or problems in this listing. Some were due to the difficulty in reading the stones in the brief time I had to do this. Other problems would appear to be copy errors on my part. All of these have been marked with an “x”. The following is an explanation of these concerns:

Alinard, Alexander: the last name could be Abnard, although I would go with Alinard.
Cameron, Jessie: the child’s data were difficult to read
MacDonald,Christana Hunt: Cynthia’s birth date, the last digit, I could not read accurately
MacDonald, John Alexander: Erna, his wife: I copied down the birth date as 1982, but it could be 1882 or 1892
MacKinnon, “unreadable”: parts of these stones were difficult to read
MacLeod,John Angus: the name “Paige” - that’s the way it appeared to me, but for Mary Kate, while James seemed to be spelt “Paign”. I assume it is the same name.
MacVicar, Edward: footstone (c): It looked like Allena Michael, but the Allena was hard to read
Matheson, “Unreadable”: his first name, and dates were difficult to read
McDonald, Angus: again, parts difficult to read, but his dates appeared to be 1868-1925
Severance,Arnold H.: his death year I copied as 1995. I obviously miscopied the date.

I apologize for these errors, but I do hope this listing will be of some assistance. If anyone can help with the above names, or if anyone discovers other errors or ommissions please let me know. My e-mail address is: johnacwilson1@pei.sympatico.ca
