MYERS SETTLEMENT CEMETERY,
Located on the Old Middletown Road in Manchester, N.S.

Red Divider Bar

Many thanks for this listing, done by Ted Sceles, summer 2005.
The cemetery is getting overgrown with bushes,
and the road leading to it is no longer maintained
by the Highways Dept.
It is likely the location of this Cemetery
will soon be forgotton by most people.

The pictures were taken for the Guysborough Historical Society
by summer student Julia Reddy

There is also a white stone with engraving barely legible. Headstone - Hart
It appears to be a name beginning with H
There is a foot marker on the same plot with the initials L. H.


From information received from Ardella MacPhee,
it is believed this stone is for Josiah Hart and his wife Lydia. Headstone - HartHeadstone - HartHeadstone - Hart
She bases the information on an article by John A. Morrison on the Harts,
where he writes that Joshua (which is the same as Josiah)
and his wife are buried in the old Myers Cemetery.
At the time of writing April 21, 1939
he states that "If you visit the little Myers burying ground in Manchester,
you will find the modest tombstones erected to memory of Joshua Hart and wife
and Charles Myers and wife, with one fencing around the four graves".
