Church of Christ (?) Cemetery,
English Harbour,
Trinity Bay

On September 14, 2001, we transcribed the headstones in a small fenced
cemetery in English Harbour.  It is located at the start of the road that
goes off to Horse Chops from English Harbour.  Leon Ivany (Diane's father's
second cousin, who is the second oldest original resident of English Harbour
still living in the community) told us it was for a small Christian sect
that he said were locally called "Go Preachers", because they didn't have
any fixed churches, and would go to different places to preach.  He also
said James and Jemima Ivany were buried in the cemetery.  In the 1935 Census
they were listed as belonging to the Church of Christ, as were George Fraser
Barnes, Barnet Barnes and Sarah Barnes (but Arthur and Susannah Fifield's
religious affiliation was listed as "others").
