. . . A Burial ground is one of the most historical references to our past. The Cemetery captures mortuary art, specialized architecture, inscription art, religious beliefs, family relations,landscape patterns, and a demographic history of the people.

The inscription art work and the pleasant surroundings can make a respected park of past lives.


An Appreciation of Island Cemeteries

By J. Russell and Waldron H. Leard

The cemeteries of Prince Edward Island are fascinating treasures to explore. From one end of the province to the other, a picture is carved in stone. The picture features gentle landscapes, beautiful trees, sometimes a view of the water and, of course, handcrafted monuments offering an immediate link with our past. The memories of those who have gone on before us live in these sanctuaries. knowing the stories of the occupants allows one to appreciate that a cemetery is not a site of finality and death, but a continuation of life. In a way, cemeteries are a vehicle of immortality.

Mark the Spot

The earliest grave markers used on the Island did not aspire to such longevity. They were usually composed of wood - perhaps a cross made of two saplings lashed together with reeds, or an inscribed board inserted in the ground. Others were made of native sandstone, which is easily scribed with a chisel or fling. The elements were hard on these markers. Wood rots, and the soft sandstone melts away in the weather. Thus very few remain, although some examples survive in places like the circular cemetery on Panmure Island and old St. Michael's among the birch trees in Launching. There are many individuals from that era, we say incorrectly, lying in unmarked graves. The graves were originally marked in some manner, and it is the markers that have disappeared, not the grave sites.

Considering the drawbacks to native stone, some immigrants brought more suitable stone with them. Some of the early Scots settlers, not sure exactly where they were emigrating to, but certain their move was permanent, brought sized pieces of granite and limestone with them. This stone might even be pre-carved but left blank, to be suitably inscribed on installation. The stone of Thomas Carruthers, in the Kirk cemetery at Cape Traverse, is one of several that were brought over as part of the baggage.

Closer to home, quarries in Wallace, Nova Scotia offered a harder, grey-green type of sandstone. Carvers called it "freestone." because it had no grain to contend with, and most Island cemeteries contain markers carved from this material. Still harder stone like granite and marble tended at first to come from British quarries, mainly in Scotland and Ireland. But by the 1900s, quarries in Quebec and Vermont began to edge British stone out of Island cemeteries.

Stone, of course, was not the only material available. At the turn of this century cast metal monuments enjoyed a brief popularity. They were made to look like solid white marble, but a rap on the top reveals that they are hollow. Advertised as "white iron or white bronze," they allowed various trim options to be applied to a basic design. The marker of Reverend Pius MacPhee in Tracadie, or that of Captain Lewis Leard in Freetown are excellent examples of this type of marker.

Few early settlements could number experienced stone cutters or gravers among their residents, so early stone markers were often crudely inscribed. As families and settlement became more established, markers of a higher quality began to make their way into Island cemeteries. Stone cutters who specialized in headstones offered more durable markers, and many families chose to "upgrade" their sections of the graveyard. The wealthy might even choose to have their stones cut in Scotland or Ireland. Until the late 1800s, few here made their entire livings from cutting headstones. John Cairns in 1858, for instance, advertised his ability to cut headstones, but also offered customers his line of grist, shelling and other mill stones. The craft was a difficult one to learn in a community that had only soft red sandstone to practice on. Many of the best cutters thus apprenticed in the United States.

By the twentieth century, most headstone makers worked from pattern books. Stones cut before this era, however, strongly demonstrate the styles of individual gravers. Very seldom will you see two identical monuments. To reinforce this individuality, the maker usually cut his name into the base of the stone. When looking for gravers' marks, keep in mind that "P.C." stands for "Perpetual Care," not somebody's initials.

A grave marker's opulence depended on the budget of the family paying for it and the skill of the carver working on it. A few stones even incorporated freestanding sculpture as part of their design. Augustine and John MacDonald's stone in the St. Andrew's Cemetery features two gargoyles, and was carved by Antoine Vincent, a Quebec-born sculptor who came to Charlottetown to work on the first St. Dunstan's Cathedral in the early 1900s. A stone crafted of similar material stands in Kinkora. It marks the grave of Dr. Michael Wall and displays a bust of the deceased and a finial with the provincial crest. It is also believed to be Vincent's work.

A stroll through a cemetery offers much detail about family and Island life. You will notice that most graves are contained in family plots, marked by a single family monument. Such monuments serve entire family units - in one instance as many as sixteen family members! On the surface, these large, often granite stones seem to be a reflection of opulence or ego. Look further, and see them for what they are; an image of family, solidity and permanence expressed for succeeding generations.

A walk through an Island cemetery can reveal an entire community history. Notice how the stones placed in the 1930s tend to be smaller, made of soft Georgia granite with the sides left rough. Ornamentation and inscriptions tend to simplicity - a reflections of the economics and ethos of the era. In older cemeteries, note how British and French surnames dominate. Note when the more "unfamiliar" Lebanese, North European and Asian names begin to appear. Along with the Celtic crosses, don't be surprised to see Polish eagles, Orthodox crosses, even the occasional Estonian sun. Compare the ancient stones inscribed in Gaelic with the modern ones featuring Arabic or Mandarin. See how different eras seem to favour different symbols.

You don't have to be there just to visit an ancestor. Look a little more closely at certain stones, and ponder some of the community folklore. Is that really Lord Selkirk's daughter in St. John's Presbyterian in Belfast? Look at Elizabeth (MacDonald) McInnis' stone at St. Mary's in Souris. Was it King George III she was supposed to have danced with once. Or was it George IV?

For its occupants, a cemetery is a peaceful oasis. For us, it should be a welcome respite from the world, place for both reflection and exploration. While they should be treated with respect and dignity, the grounds are also a park. Reverence is not compromised by a family enjoying a picnic, a couple enjoying a jog, or an individual enjoying a meditation with the past. A cemetery is an active part of our community of today and a tribute to our community of yesterday.

Please. Walk on the grass!

Note on Sources

This article is one of several unfinished pieces found in the personal archive of my uncle, John Russell Leard, who passed away in 1993. I have edited and in some cases added to his text. He lists, as his sources, the various stones and markers he visited in Island cemeteries, and interview he had, probably sometime in the early 1980s, with Johnny Beers of Brooklyn, monument carver and gospel singer, and a conversation with the Reverend John Sutherland Bonnell of New York, NY, on the symbolism of grave markers. My daughter Susan and myself took this material and verified his observations by traveling to the cemeteries he cites. A special thanks to Reg "Dutch" Thompson for his assistance and guidance, and to Canon Robert Tuck for further advice on the symbolism to be found on grave markers.

Although the overall design of a grave marker allowed for individuality, they incorporate a common language of symbolism. Although volumes could (and have been) written on the symbols of grave markers, here are some of the more common Christian symbols to be found on older Prince Edward Island markers:

The following list of some symbolic interpretations is helpful when viewing these older memorials.

Columns:
  • Broken - a person has passed away in the prime of his life.
  • Complete - signifies that life has been completed.
  • Urn on top - a symbol of death.
  • Shroud on urn - a funerary sign meaning burial.

Acanthus leaf: very common in the cemetery especially on corners of capitals, holding up globes, etc., symbol of peace in the Garden of Eden

Palm: symbol of peace, also of resurrection, forever lasting life

Ivy: symbol of immortality because it stays green forever

Anchor: used in the catacombs, anchored in the Christian belief which even death cannot change, symbol of hope

Clover: the trinity, symbol of the Irish

Hands:
  • One hand - the hand of God
  • Two hands - holy matrimony

Laurel: symbol of victory

Celtic cross: Irish (dear to the Church of Scotland)

Grapes: God's care, blood of Christ, last supper

Eye in triangle: eye of God in the Trinity, all seeing, all knowing

Alpha omega: very old sign used in second century, first and last letter of alphabet (Greek), beginning and end of life

R.I.P.: short form for Requiescat in pace (Rest in Peace)

Star with 5 corners: the Pentagram, old Greek sign for magician, symbol of the golden rule, the deceased is under protection of Christ

Olive branch (with dove): peace, symbol of safety which the dove brought to Noah after the flood

Cross and crown: victory with Christ over death

Lily: purity

Ladder: scale of Perfection


Cairn marks site of old church

The Guardian, Charlottetown, Wednesday July 15, 1992

Winsloe - Amidst the skirl of bagpipes rendered by piper Bruce MacLaren, a cairn marking the site where Highfield Presbyterian Church once stood was recently dedicated.

The cairn was dedicated by Rev. William Scott, assisted by Rev. Donald Nicholson. For many years the church was a focal point for families in the community.

Highfield Cemetery, Winsloe (formerly know as St. Anthony' Burial Ground) was consecrated in 1870, when Hugh MacKinnon donated land to be used as a community burial ground. Construction of Highfield Presbyterian Church commenced on April 11, 1900, and it opened for worship on Nov. 4 of that year. Described in detail in the Charlottetown Guardian of Nov. 14, 1900, it was written: "The congregation is to be congratulated upon the construction of such a handsome church. It has not been erected to gratify the lust of the eye, being plain in design, yet it is a very pretty and substantial building." Old church accounts record: "The total cost of church $1,551.15."

The unveiling of the cairn was performed by Millar Sanderson and Raymond MacKinnon, who took up the work of previous generations in the upkeep and beautification of this pioneer cemetery. The dedication of the cairn was the fulfilment of a promise made to erect a memorial to the church, after its removal in 1959.

In recounting the history of cairns, Rev. William Scott was both enlightening and entertaining. He spoke of the first cairns, constructed loosely of large stones, placed in a common heap by clansmen departing to do battle among themselves or with the English. Before leaving on such a campaign, each fighting man added his stone to the new cairn. Upon his return, he retrieved this particular rock, those remaining bearing testament to the numbers who had fallen in battle.

The P.E.I. United Church Men, accompanied by pianist Marguerita Wood and organist Wendell Stevenson, sang a variety of hymns, leading the congregation in the closing selection, a rousing delivery of "Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory." Rev. Donald Nicholson delivered the benediction in both English and Gaelic.

Today, family and community lovingly attend this cemetery. Some stones have failed to survive the passage of time, and hard times prevented many hallowed resting places from ever being marked. Our proud chestnut tree, planted by Lemuel MacLean is a living memorial to Elizabeth and Reagh, his young children, who died only two days apart.

In more prosperous times, trees to beautify, have been planted and an iron archway erected. Since 1973, our annual memorial flower service has been held, providing a special occasion for fellowship in today's more mobile community.

The dedication of those including Millar Sanderson, the late John MacKinley, Redvers Stewart and Stewart MacKinnon, who held leadership roles in affairs of cemetery, has perpetuated the interest and maintained the property for successive generations. Twenty-one members currently comprise the cemetery committee who gratefully acknowledged the support of the following individuals - Cody Banks, Trevor Matheson, Frank Johnson, Jeff MacKinnon, Al Brideau and all those who contributed in so many ways.


MARBLE WORKS - LEWIS

William P. Lewis emigrated to Canada from Scotland in 1853. Shortly after arriving, he located at Cardigan River. He built saw and cloth mills on the site now called Lewis' Creek. Mr. Lewis had learned the trade of the stone mason in Scotland and for several years took contracts for building stone walls and plastering.

After the Cardigan Bridge was built, he ran a business and operated a general store for a number of years. When that failed, he started a new business - the Lewis Monument Works - which became well known throughout the Island. Many Lewis monuments can be seen in local cemeteries. Marble for these monuments came from Vermont by ship and then later by train.

One of the finest examples of Mr. Lewis' work is the main altar at All Saints Church, which he designed and carved.

Mr. Lewis' granddaughter, Agnes MacDonald, remembered a beautiful marble table he made for his daughter, Catherine. This table was adorned with rose thistle and shamrock. Two similar tables were donated to Notre Dame Convent in Charlottetown where they can still be seen in the parlor.

This special talent was passed on to Mr. Lewis' sons. William A. and David. Stephen Livingstone worked as an apprentice in the shop. Alfred Keoghan and Joe MacLellan worked with the Lewis' as stone cutters.

William A. Lewis constructed the communion rail for All Saints' Church. Many older parishioners remember this railing which was removed from the church during renovations around 1955. As well, he designed the monument erected on Brudenell Island in memory of the Scottish pioneers.


MARBLE WORKS -WILMOT VALLEY

A small industry that operated for a few years in Wilmot Valley was the Marble Works. It was in Lot 19 across the road from the school and its location can be seen on Lake Map, 1863. The shop was owned by Simon L. Hale whose occupation was marble engraver. His work included mantle pieces, table tops and tombstones. Some of his work can be seen in the Baptist Cemetery, Bedeque and in Lower Bedeque Cemetery. These tombstones tend to be similar in appearance - a slab of white marble with a design at the top, either a carving of hands or an open Bible. It would appear that the parties who bought the tombstones did their own installation as they do not have a base like the stones of today.

His work can be distinguished from others because a marble engraver, like a painter, usually marks his work in the lower corner. Unfortunately a coating of moss and the natural erosion of the marble which occurred over the years has made the mark hard to find.

A story entitled, "This was Marble Mountain" in a recent issue of Cape Breton's Magazine, tells about the rather exacting work of splitting and removing the slabs of marble from the mountainside and cutting and polishing them in the marble mill.

About this time lime was being shipped from this area of Nova Scotia to Prince Edward Island so it is quite likely that each boatload would include a few marble slabs for Mr. Hale.

Mr. Hale died when only thirty-five years of age and after his death the marble works of Wilmot Valley closed.


CHURCH OPENING

Auditorium Over Crowded at the Services.

A Brief Description of the Edifice Recently Erected at Highfield.

According to announcement the Presbyterian Church, (Kirk) situated at St. Anthony's Cemetery, Highfield, was opened for public worship on the 4th inst. The day was beautiful and when the Rev. J. Goodwill took his stand at the desk the church was filled to overflowing. The first song of praise that ascended to the Lord God of Hosts from the congregation was the 100th Psalm -

"All people that on earth do dwell,

Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice, etc."

Rev. Mr. Goodwill preached an able and interesting sermon from 2nd verse of the 66th chapter of Isaiah.

In the afternoon not more than one half the people could gain admittance into the church and while many stood by the widows to hear the discourse many turned away when they saw the place so crowded. Rev. D. McLean, the pastor of the congregation preached from Jeremiah 7th chapter, 2nd verse. At the evening service the Rev. Joseph congregation preached from Jeremiah 7th chapter, 2nd verse.

At the evening service the Rev. Joseph Parkins preached to a crowded house from the words "Behold he Prayeth" Acts 9:11. He gave a very practical and interesting discourse and had the undivided attention of the large congregation from beginning to end.

The congregation is to be congratulated upon the completion of such a handsome church. It has not been erected to gratify the lust of the eye, being plain in design, yet it is a very pretty and substantial building. The congregation, as a whole, seem to be in a flourishing condition, as this is the third new church that has been erected within its bounds during the last four years, also one repaired. The one just completed was only commenced in the early part of the summer, but a willing people with an active, energetic committee can do marvelous things in a short time .Mr. Charles Bovyer, foreman, Mr. Neil Stewart, Mr. D. Carr, Mr. Lawson and Mr. Neil McKinnon, were the carpenters, and all have shown by their workmanship on this building that they are experienced men. The work is neatly done and the acoustic properties good. The arched ceiling is finished in ash and walnut and reflects great credit upon the designer. The tapering spire is surmounted by a large Scotch a fitting emblem for the Church of Scotland. The finishing touches inside and outside were given by the well-known painter Mr. Corney. He is always ready to take a contract in his line of business and always able to do it well. The building is heated with hot air; the furnace being supplied and placed in position by Mr. Hermans. Two rows of pews - the two outside rows being curved - were made by the well-known firm of Mark Wright & Co.

The thanks of the Committee and of the entire congregation are hereby tendered to the many friends both in the city and in the country who have so generously contributed towards the erection of this church and a warm welcome will at all times be given to all who may come to worship the God of their fathers in the "Old Kirk.." The receipts on the day of opening amounted to about $100.00.


Highfield Cemetery or St. Anthony Burial Ground

This information was obtained from a personal survey of the cemetery and documents held at the Public Archives of P.E.I. The transcript may include: dates of birth, death and marriage, number of children, surnames, maiden names, place of birth, persons work and military records. Also included is the prose, poetry, and scriptural verses that are on the headstone and any other ways to communicate their legacy.

In some cases the prose, poetry, and scriptural verses are not readable. This may be due to the erosion of the tombstone resulting from a number of factors: environment, mosses which cover the stone, damage to the stone, and the durability of the stone. For record keeping, what could be seen was recorded and the rest was left. If someone wants to look up scriptures please seek out the Bible (the King James version of the Bible may be most suited to this cemetery).

Listed with these transcripts is a map of the Highfield Cemetery graveyard. If you wish to look up the location of a tombstone, simply look for the surname and the section A, B, or C on the map, plus the number given to the stone.

An example is: AFFLECK This translates to surname AFFLECT, section B on the Highfield Cemetery map and stone number 239; i.e. B239.

Please keep in mind these transcripts are up to September 1996, if names appear after that time period it is only because they would show up in the graveyard. Records of people dying from 1996 to 1999 are not available at the time of printing. Our regrets to family and friends regarding this matter.

If you wish to continue on with this cemetery history, please consider visiting the cemetery at Argyle Shore. This place was settled in the early 1800s from Argyllshire, Scotland. In 1791 the vessel Argyle brought 150 Scottish people to P.E.I. Since this is an older cemetery, it is possible one could locate previous generations of people in your family history.

HIGHFIELD PROTESTANT CEMETERY, LOT 33 CEMETERY INDEX

When using the index please keep in mind that wives are indexed under their married and maiden names and under their combination of married names in cases where they married several times.

In cases where we were uncertain if it was the person's second or their surname we listed it as a surname and related it to the proper cemetery tombstone surname it was listed with.

This index lists people in the cemetery who may not have a tombstone, gravemarker, but came from other sources in the cemetery, church, or public archive transcripts.

For names which begin with Mc or Mac please look under both spellings.
