HALFYARD BURIAL GROUND
OCHRE PIT COVE


Photo Contributed by Matt Mullaly

"Sacred
to the memory of
ELIZABETH
wife of RICHARD HALFYARD
who departed this life
October 4th Anno Domine 1828
Aged 76 years

This Earth is affected no more
with sickness, nor shaken with pain
The war in the members is oer
And never shall vex her again
The soul has oertaken her mate
And caught him again in the sky
Advanced to her holy estate
And pleasure that never shall die."

"Sacred
to the Memory of
RICHARD the husband of
ELIZABETH HALFYARD
who departed this life the 24
day of July 1815
aged 71 years

He was an Affectionate husband
A kind and tender parent
Also a man of the strictest integrity.
Honour and Honesty were the
governing principles of his life.
He has left a numerous family
to lament their loss."

HALFYARD
MOTHER
ELIZABETH CHURCHILL
OF DARTMOUTH, ENG.
1752-1828

FATHER
RICHARD IV
OF BOVEY TRACEY, ENG.
1744-1815
"MARRIED SEPTEMBER 17, 1772 AT ST. JOHN'S, NFLD
PLACED BY THEIR DESCENDANTS ON THE OCCASION OF THE
HALFYARD FAMILY REUNION JULY 1994."


Located on the Roy HALFYARD property, just off the Wharf Road,
Ochre Pit, Cove, Newfoundland.

It is believed that there were a number of other burials at this site, but no one knows who they are, or how many there were! The three markers above are the only ones at the site. Two grandsons of Richard & Elizabeth, Richard Stephen d 1837, age 17 and Richard d 1842, age 30, are both buried in the Methodist/United Cemetery, so Elizabeth may well have been the last person to be buried at this site.
