Headstones at Pilley's Island



The following inscriptions are from the Pilley's Island old Anglican
Cemetery on a hill above the community, shown to us by the very helpful
caretaker of the present cemeteries of the town who guided us up to its
secluded location. He told us that most of the gravestones in this cemetery
had been vandalized years ago, and the only ones remaining are the following
three, and even these have fallen and are about to be swallowed up by the earth:

The stone is broken, and the first three words appear to be:
[Eliza wife of]
Elias FRENCH died Dec. 17, 1895 aged 46 years.

Husband and children I must leave you
Leave yes leave you all alone
But my blessed saviour calls me
Calls me to a heavenly home.

William WAY son of Wm. died Sept. 21, 190[1] [?] aged 17 years.

Eliza darling child of Horace & Eleanor HERBERT died Jan. 27 [?], 1897 aged
21 years & 11 months.
