St. George’s Anglican Church Cemetery Searching for Ancestral Families

  A number of years ago the cemetery was vandalized and out of the approximate 35 burials, only a handful of headstone are able to be restored. They are trying to locate family descendants. The identified headstones are:

1.  Evan and Sarah Lyndab Price

2.  Robert Price ( 1836 – 1872) – son of Evan and Sarah

3.  John Smith ( d. October 26, 1865) – he was also a People’s Warden at St. George’s in 1858

4.  Rebecca Smith (d.Sept. 1861) – wife of John Smith

5.  Joseph Shillington (d. May 10, 1858) – age 39

  • Abagail (b. 1856), d. June 17, 1858) – the inscription on the stone says “daughter of J & J Shillington” (Jane & Joseph Shiillington)

    • further research shows they had other children:

  • Mary Ann (b. approx 1846 or 47) Mary Ann actually married Robert Miller (of Esquesing) at St. George’s Church, Jan. 1863 and it shows his parents as Levi and Elizabeth Miller

             – James – not sure of exact date

             – William (b. December 29, 1854)

6. Mary Ann Corry ( 1864 ) her husband was John Corry

7. Charles Dade, Helen Dade and daughter Amy Dade – their headstone is fine but I doesn’t have any leads as to ancestors still living in the areaI

If you can be assistance please phone Carol Ann Currie. ( 905-878-8387)
