McKenzie Cemetery

Beechmont area of Ball's Creek, Cape Breton County,NS

The following are copied from the headstones in the McKenzie Cemetery located in the Beechmont area of Ball's Creek, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. I believe the cemetery is situated on what was once the "homestead" for these Mc/MacKenzies.
The first stone is that of my Great-Grandfather, Donald John McKenzie, born in Ball's Creek in 1831. Transcription by Carol Jenkins CGTJ@aol.com.

(Note re the above transcription: Wayne Richards, a direct descendent of this couple, has confirmed that the transcription is accurate.  He has, however, evidence of the actual birth and death dates, as follows:  "Peter MacKenzie was born in 1846 and he died in 1884.  Margaret (Morrison) MacKenzie was born in 1853 and died in 1935."  Carol Jenkins, the transcriber of this cemetery, concurs with Wayne regarding his knowledge of the facts, and she has recommended that this note be included to assist researchers, while preserving the integrity of the transcription.
