An excellent and quiet location by a river to spend eternity. One of the oldest born I have seen at a pioneer cemetery, John Innis 1767-1834 of Scottish ancestry. He was born in Newfoundland then moved to New Brunswick on 480 acres of land near the Kennebecasis River. When John was a grandfather he took his grown family to Ontario. His son Isaac owned property in North Dumfries and Isaac's son Sam owned property here in Drumbo, Oxford County where his grandfather eventually died. There are some unique headstones here and some leaning against an old tree. The weather turned and made for some great shots.

mobileworks Yes, [punchbowl],this is one of the reasons I enjoy them so much ; the detail and the time[probably by hand], the manufacture took. I have also seen headstones, with how the person died right on there and some all in German.
