Johnston Burial Site

Lot 15, Con 11 Bathurst Township.

Burial Dates - Unknown

This burial site is believed to be Edward Johnston's private burial plot, located on the lot 15, Concession 11 of Bathurst Township.

Edward Johnston and his family arrived from Ireland on the ship "Atlantic" June 22, 1819, 1 male, 1 female, 1 male under 7 years and 1 female over 7 years.  They located on January 23, 1821 in the Township of Bathurst, on the above mentioned lot and concession.

Apparently Edward Johnston died in 1853 and we would assume that he was born in Ireland in the late 1700's.  The story goes that there are 2 men, 1 woman and a child buried here.

We would appreciate receiving any information regarding this burial site.
