Pinchard's Island Cemeteries


Transcriber's Note.

There are two cemeteries on Pinchard's Island. One located on the northwestern side of the island and one situated near the center of the island. I went to the one centered in the middle of the island. There was a sign at each end of the cemetery defining one part to be Anglican and the other part to be the United. I treated them both as one cemetery. The cemetery is basically in poor condition. The grass was about waist deep in several sections and quite a few of the headstones were either broken or failing down or buried. Some were badly pitted with age making them virtually unable to be read. The following tombstones are some of the ones I managed to read, but there were quite a few I did not have time to do.
