St. Hyacinth Catholic Cemetery
D'Escousse, Richmond County, NS
(The Old Burying Ground)

The following is a transcription of all legible gravestones which remain in the old burying ground at St. Hyacinth’s Church. This cemetery is located directly behind the Glebe House, overlooking Lennox Passage. The majority of the early stones and markers are missing. The cemetery property slopes towards the sea and shore erosion has taken its toll. Several of the old burials were re-interred before they fell into the sea. The death records of St. Hyacinth Church may be of help in identifying many of the individuals whose gravestones are now missing.

Individuals that appear on the same gravestone are single-spaced on the page. All the rest (those which are double-spaced) have their own markers.

This listing recorded by Jeanne D. Belford, 03 Jun 1999.
