Murray River Pioneer Cemetery
Kings County, Prince Edward Island

Contributed by Leslie Nutbrown, Jun 25, 2006, last edited Sep 16, 2006 . Total records = 90.

From the town of Murray River take Route 18 east toward Murray Harbour. Watch for Pioneer Cemetery Road on your left. Take this red gravel road and you will see the cemetery on your right.

The cemetery was established in 1834 and after being abandoned for some 50 years, it was restored in 1973. Most stones are legible, and the cemetery is fenced and gated with a small access road.

Susan Nutbrown and I made a complete recording of all legible tombstones in June of 2006.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
