1. Most of the rough information was obtained from handwritten notes by Donna Parker of New Minas, Nova Scotia. Obtained by J.B. on a personal visit the summer of 2004. No supporting sources available, although her research was carried out at the Kentville, Kings County Museum and on field gravesite visits.
