Site Comments:

The southern perimeter of the CVCS-2 Colonial Period cemetery lies roughly 70m north of the proposed development alignment. The CVCS-2 cemetery, or southern portion of the greater Colonial Period cemetery, measures roughly 100x50m in size with the original cemetery gate posts demarcating the original south-central entrance of the cemetery. The exact number of graves is unknown, but estimated at 200-300+ in number. Graves are demarcated by varying types of grave markers, from formal granite, inscribed headstones, to clearly outline graves with cement headstones, some of which the inscriptions are still legible. The north-eastern and central part of the site is characterized by more traditional style graves; some stone outlined, some decorated and some inscribed. In many cases grave mounds have settled making these graves difficult to identify amidst often thick vegetation. In the central part of the cemetery it seems as though some graves have been exhumed, inferred to be for reburial in formal cemetery purposes. The graves vary quite radically in age. Un-inscribed graves are impossible to date: However, settled grave mounds are an indicator of relative age, implying that many of these graves may well pre-date 60 years of age. Marked graves range in date of burial from the early 1900’s to as recent as 2004.
