St. Patrick’s Cemetery

This entry is part 55 of 60 in the series Cemeteries

St Patrick’s is near Kinkora, in Perth County, Ontario Canada. The mist was just lifting on the morning I visited this cemetery, on a beautiful spring day.

Cecilia M & Joseph E. children of
Michael & Ellen Judge RIP

Although my cousin relates that her brothers accompanied the body of their father, Bernard Long, to Canada for burial in this cemetery with is wife, I could not see any marking on the gravestone noting his burial here. Bernard Long died 27 February 1913 in Cadillac, Wexford, Michigan, where he resided near his children after his wife’s death.

Ellen Judge was the youngest child of Lucy Riley and Bernard Long; her children who are buried here were Bernard and Lucy’s grandchildren.

    It was quite a sight, the picture doesn’t do it justice. Maybe because you can’t feel the dampness and feel the cool spring breeze in the photo.
