These are photographs of the Baptist Cemetery in West Jeddore that I took in early November 2018. I was not able to photograph all the headstones as I wished to due to the windy and rainy weather. I skipped over the more recent ones and missed most of the top right area.

If you have any photos you would like to share here, please send them to me and I will gladly add them to the site. Thank you.

These are in no particular order.

King George and Queen Bess

Halifax Royal Tour

Halifax City provided one of the real highlights in a grand and glorious farewell to Their Majesties. Well Done, Halifax!

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation did a splendid job in portraying the Royal tour all across Canada, and the Canadian Press is also deserving of compliment. There has never been anything better to date by both press and radio, but it was an event which called for the best.

One may recall the enthusiasm at Ottawa and Toronto, the great crowds in Montreal, and the clamor of the cities of the West, but it is difficult to pronounce whether anything in Canada happened in quite the way those people of Halifax gave a farewell on Thursday. To hear that mass cheering simply stirred emotional depths of all listeners in. For the bailiwick of Senator Dennis of The Halifax Herald we will herewith say, that Halifax people do know how to cheer. Their pent-up feelings were far better than Toronto could ever show, the ultra-loyal Queen City of the Dominion. Perhaps we are unfair in these remarks, but Halifax people did Canada proud in the lovely gesture of the people in farewell salute to the King and Queen of Canada, the United Kingdom and other Dominions beyond the seas.

There is one thing of which the world may be assured. The people of Canada love their King and Queen. There has become a personal attachment to the Throne, never known in centuries past. The goodness of Queen Bess, the rectitude of King George, have simply appealed to every Canadian heart and mind. We have no costermongers in this land, but if we had, their hats would be raised in salute to the gracious, loving and much beloved couple who have just paid the honor of a visit to the Dominion of Canada.

 i loved you better than you knew-vintage-poem-newspaper clipping

I Loved You Better Than You Knew

Vintage Poem Newspaper Clipping

The highest type of sportsmanship is the theme of this song. Such a renunciation in such a spirit implies a quality of character that deserves a better destiny.

Our hands are clasp’d, the last forever,

Perhaps we’ll never meet again;

I loved you as I could none other;

This parting fills my heart with pain;

You ask, and freely I forgive you.

The happy past I must forget,

And though I wander on in sorrow,

I hope that you’ll be happy yet.

Chorus:

As through this weary world I wander,

My thoughts alone will be of you,

In memory I will see you ever;

I loved you better than you knew.

Perhaps when I have gone forever,

You’ll sometimes sit and think of me,

And wonder if I’m dead or living;

Perchance I’ll think the same of thee;

And, when your friends have all departed,

The friends you tho’t were tried and true,

Remember one you left heart-broken

Had loved you better than you knew.

Matthew Gaston

There passed away on Saturday, very suddenly, one of the most highly respected and best-liked farmers in the district – Matthew Gaston – Mr. Gaston, who was 74 years of age, had enjoyed, apparently prectically perfect health, death being due to a heart sizure attributed to over exertion, while looking after one of his cattle. His fatal seizure came while he was about his work. Mr. Gaston was a member of a family remarkable in the county for longevity. His mother died 10 years ago, at the age of 97 years and a sister, Mrs. Cooper, who made her home with him, is now 87 years of age, while his surviving brother, Robert, is a man of 76. Both Mrs. Cooper and the brother mentioned are uncommonly vigorous in body and alert in mind for people of their age.

Mr. Gaston is survived by his wife for whom sympathy will be felt. His farm is one of the largest in the immediate neighborhood of Tangier, and the upright, genial farmer was liked wherever known.

His funeral will take place this afternoon at Tangier and from the Presbyterian Church there.

Mrs. George W. Wolfe

Sarah C. Prest

It was with deep regret that friends in Dartmouth learned today of the death at her home, 24 Maple street, Lexington, Mass., of Mrs. George W. Wolfeville, for many years a well known and highly esteemed resident of this town. Several years ago the family removed to the United States, and since then it was with genuine pleasure that old friends welcomed the return of Mr. and Mrs. Wolfe on a visit to Dartmouth.

Mrs. Wolfe, who was in her seventy-sixth year, became seriously ill on Wednesday, and passed peacefully away on February third. Had she remained in her usual health and been spared to the sixth, she had anticipated celebrating with Mr. Wolfe the forty-fourth anniversary of their wedding.

While residing in Dartmouth Mrs. Wolfe endeared herself to many through her kindly hospitality and participation in every good work. As a member of Grace Church she was a indefatigable worker in the Ladies’ Aid and W. M. S. Auxilliary. She was an active member of the W. C. T. U. and an enthusiastic worker in the Daughters of Rebekah.

The  sympathy of many friends is with those bereft by her sudden passing. She is survived by her life partner, George W. Wolfe, who was for a number of years foreman carpenter at the Dockyard; her son Gordon, an architect and well known athlete; and her daughter Mabel, now a nurse, but formerly a member of the staff of the Dartmouth Ferry Office.

The older boy is a Bonn but I am not sure if he is Walter aka Pete, Billy or Weldon aka Boss.

Please comment below if you know these boys names and where this photograph was taken. I believe the buildings may be cottages that are now known as Serenity by the Sea Guest House and Cottages.

Thank you.
