CEMETERY NOTES (per Matt Mullaly)

The individuals above are buried in this private Jacobs Family Cemetery, located on the old highway on the southside of Northern Bay, near the Northern Bay Sands Park.

The Jacobs family of Northern Bay were Methodist and consequently appear in Methodist/United records for the neighboring communities of Ochre Pit Cove, Western Bay and Blackhead, as well as Northern Bay. They wern't particularly wealthy, but, for whatever reason, they had their own little private cemetery close to where they lived in Northern Bay.

I'm guessing that it was probably established prior to the Methodist/United church and cemetery there. However, the other Protestants there at the time were buried in cemeteries in nearby communities. Interesting........
