FREEMAN,

NORTHUMBERLAND Co.: I seek a Francis FREEMAN who, in a land petition dated 1816 claimed to be (1) a long-time resident of the "Newcastle District", (2) a veteran of the 84th Regiment of Foot which was disbanded in 1784, (3) 67 years old and (4) a native of the Province (now state) of Pennsylvania.

BRADY, BURNELY CEMETERY, WARKWORTH CEMETERY

My gggrandfather, James BRADY and Terence BRADY were both originally buried in Burnely Cemetery according to obituaries. I am told that the cemetery no longer exists and legend says they were moved to Warkworth. Is there any place that would have kept a record of those originally buried in Burnley? I am positive there would have been headstones with inscriptions. The OFCA says that Warkworth Cemetery is abandoned. What happened to the people there?

Please reply to: Marcy CLAIR mclair@bellsouth.net

Response of 24 Feb 1999: "No, it is not abandoned...it has several caretakers who take very good care of it...If you would like to check out if you have ancestors there, or would like some info on them, write to: Clerk-Administrator, Township Office, 40 Main Street, Warkworth, Ontario K0K 3K0 Canada". from Linda Herman at herman@erols.com
