Cemeteries of Northumberland County


From Contributor, Denis LAWLESS:
"This cemetery was done by someone many years ago. The stones are no longer readable. I found the list at the National Archives here in Ottawa. I made some corrections to mistakes from my knowledge of some of those intered there. For example, the person making the recordings of the name "John Lawless" assumed that Reuben and Jane Lawless, his parents, are buried there with him. They are not. They will be found in the Old St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery. They are my grandparents."
