This listing is for a small cemetery at the abandoned fishing village of
Yankee Harbour.
There are no stones or markers for any graves.
Information from Baptismal, marriage and church membership records prove
that persons buried in the cemetery had lived there.
Arthur Peitzsch, who gave Archie the list of names,
had them given to him by his father,
who was almost a life long resident of Yankee Harbour
(sometimes called Yankee Cove). At its population peak,
the village had only ten families. Given the lack of dates and information,
some of the other facts included may be helpful to those who are researching.

With regard to John and Matilda Feltmate,
