I was wondering if anyone knows where many of the Loyalists who settled in this area were buried? I know it's alot of information here to ask about, but I'm hoping maybe somone will have information on some of these people or maybe know where I can get the information. I know that they are NOT buried at Woodlawn or St.Andrews, since records of these cemeteries are available online. They MAY be at Trinity Anglican and the information is missing and the stone dissapeared. Most of these ancesters were either Presbyterian or Anglican, except for MAYBE Mary Grant (wife of John Grant) and/or William J. Hamiton who are not found buried with their spouses.

In particular I'm looking for the burial of Benjamin Eastman 1759-1836 (and his wives Hannah Sherman and Mary Waterbury 1786-1866) and his brother Nadab Eastman 1761-1839 (and his wives, one of which was Elizabeth Phillips 1773-1815). I'm descended directly from both Benjamin and Nadab.

I also can't find the burial location of Benjamin's son, Alva Schofield Eastman 1825-1907, husband of Sarah Johnston. Alva Schofield Eastman's son Charles is buried at Woodlawn in Cornwall and some of Nadab's descendants are buried at Trinity Anglican Church.

Benjamin Eastman settled in Cornwall Twp (Eamers Corners) in Stormont county and most were Anglican and were baptised and married at Trinity Anglican in Cornwall. I don't have as much information on Nadab Eastman, but his wife Elizabeth Phillips was born in Glengarry county and baptised at St.Andrew's Presbyterian in Williamstown.

I'm also looking for burial locations of other Loyalists (and their wives):

1. Robert Johnston 1760-1799, husband of Sarah Wood.

2. Jacob Yancope Alguire/Algire 1730-1806, husband of Salome Wale/Vale as well as thier son, Jacob Alguire/Algire 1770-1853 and his wife Catherine Froman c.1785-1851.

3. Johan/John Matthias Snetsinger 1755-1833, husband of Christina Astin Curtis 1759-1824 as well as thier son Johann/John Matthias Snetsinger 1790-1855 and his wife Margaret Elizabeth Cline 1794-1873.

4. Michael Cline 1746-? and his wife Catherine Weyck/Wick/Vick c.1750-1842 as well as thier son Michael Cline 1789-1875 and his wife Mary Gallinger 1800-1892.

5. Jonas Wood 1738-1815, husband of Sarah Osborn 1730-1815 as well as their son Nathaniel Wood 1770-1869 and his wife Anna Nancy Helmer 1787-1870.

6. Johan Michael Gallinger 1726-1797, husband of Agatha Alida Ady 1727-? as well as their sons, Christian Gallinger 1756-1837 and his wife Sarah Runnions/Runion c.1757-1815 and son Henrich "Henry" Gallinger 1761-1835 and his wife Dorothea "Dolly" Eamer 1761-1830.

7. Hector Manson 1779-1849 (he lived in Mille Roches), husband of Eleanor Campbell c.1788-1873. As well, I'm not sure but I'm assuming that Hector's parents Thomas Manson 1741-? & Elizabeth/Margaret Walker 1748-? possibly came to Canada as well. I'm aslo looking for Eleanor Campbell's parents. Her father was Daniel Campbell UEL and she was baptised and married at St.Andrew's in Williamstown, Glengarry. I assume he wasn't a Loyalist, but I'm also looking for more information on Hector's son-in-law, William J. Manson ?-1847 who drowned in the canal at Cornwall. Hector Manson and William J. Hamilton ran a tavern in Mille Roches called Morgan's Inn.

8. Leonard Helmer 1730-?, husband of Catherine Nellis 1724-1805 and their son Leonard Helmer 1751-c.1806 and his wife Elizabeth Koch 1756-aft.1806, all of Osnabruck township, Stormont county.

9. Donald Ross 1760-1817 and his wife Christian "Christy" Munro 1774-1848 of Charlottenburg township, Glengarry county.

10. Philip Eamer 1729-? and his wife Catherine Lysergin 1730-?. I'm only assuming they died in Canada since he was a Loyalist.

11. Mary Grant c.1797-aft1869 (this may or may not be her maiden name), wife of John Grant c.1798-1869. He is buried at St.Andrews in Williamstown but his wife is not mentioned on his stone. Where is she buried? They had a daughter Jane/Sarah Jane Grant and John Grant had a brother named Duncan.

12. Parents of James Alexander Dow (husband of Sarah Jane Grant) and Margaret Dow (wife of Gilman Taylor). James Alexander Dow is buried with his wife at St.Andrews in Williamstown. The mother was definitely named Helen/Ellen and her maiden name was possibly Grant. She was born c.1793 and died after 1851. Her husband is thought to be named Thomas Dow and he had died by 1851. They lived in Montreal at the time their children were born.

Thanks in advance for any help!
