    Mike Crosby continues to update postings in the family trees  They are usually  minor, most are related to family trees that were posted years ago, and since then new dates  or recent obits.  Mostly  exact dates and locations. Check out your family tree and if it needs small adjustments, let us know

St. John’s Anglican Cemetery, on Balsam Road, west of Courtland St. in Atherley, is a small closed cemetery, with only 18 burials. The first in 1871, the last in 1894. Only a hand full of broken gravemarkers remain.

A memorial monument has been erected, honouring those who are laid to rest here.
