Joe Batt's Arm - Old Anglican Cemetery Part 1

The following Headstone information was recorded on a sunny day in September 2000. It only contains the factual data, names and dates. h = Husband, w = Wife, s = Son, d = Daughter m = Mother and f = Father. y = years m = months if it followed a number and d = days. Where a man and woman were listed on one headstone or it was otherwise readily apparent that the couple were husband and wife, h or w of…. was added in such cases.

This is a large cemetery located between the Anglican Church and the ocean. The random placement of the graves and the growth of grass and rose bushes made the recording of the headstone info difficult. Hence there may have been headstones that were missed. Some of the info was checked against that of David Brett and Sandy Doyle who had done earlier partial recordings of this cemetery. While every attempt was made to ensure accuracy, if a discrepancy is noted the actual headstone inscription shall take precedence.

Inside the Church there is a case containing a Sealer's Gaff with the letters JJ carved into it. The following information is also in the case: IN MEMORIAM April 7, 1917 four men from South Side JBA left for seals and were lost. Three were brothers and the only members of the family of Mr and Mrs Thomas Jacobs, Joseph, Stephen and Walter Jacobs. The fourth was Francis Pomroy. In June a Gaff belonging to Joseph Jacobs was found at Western Head, Mortons Hr. Two others, William Freake and Herbert Freake of JBA were also lost on the same day.

Headstone inscription were collected and compiled by MARGARET and GERALD MAJOR, HELEN HEAD BOSSLEY, September 2000. While we have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there may be typographical errors.
