    Is there a list of burials? I am looking for Samuel Holland’s family. Also John Clark’s family.

        I made a reply. Maybe it needs to be reviewed? Pvt. John Clark is my ancestor but that family married into the Holland family. I have quite a bit of information about all of them but one sticking point is who is Thomas T. Ward who m. Susannah Holland. George Holland m. Elizabeth Clark. The way everyone intermarried I wonder if he is a brother to Ebenezer Ward who m. Margaret Peggy Clark. I’ve found hardly any information about Thomas or Ebenezer. All of this would be 1770ish to before 1800 in PEI.

    I have forwarded your request to George Dalton who is a 6th generation grandson of Holland.

      😦 It’s not the right Thomas Warde and Susannah Holland. Susannah was the daughter of Samuel Holland who surveyed PEI. She was b. 1779 probably in England. The fact that her father traveled all over makes the birth of children hard to follow sometimes. She and Thomas were m. in Quebec in 1799. Susannah and Thomas had Catherine and Susannah. Thomas had Amelia with 2nd wife Ann Wegg.

      Back in the day, soldier’s wives followed them so their children were often born somewhere other than where we think they lived.
