Piction Burial Threatened

Just yesterday, the OGS cemetery committee received word of a Notice of Intent published in the December 16th edition of the Picton Gazette. The notice is regarding a burial site at Isaiah Tubbs Resort and Restaurant in Hallowell Township,  Prince Edward County.

According to the notice, the Registrar intends to declare the site an “Unapproved Cemetery” and invites representatives of the persons whose remains may still be interred in the former cemetery to contact the Registrar within two weeks after December 23, 2010

 Time is short. Please share this information with anyone you know who may have connections with this burial ground.

If you fall into this category, please contact the Registrar by any of the following methods: 

Michael D’Mello
Registrar, Cemeteries Act (Revised)
Cemeteries Regulation Unit

On a related note, OGS is still requesting letters and petition signatures in support of Bill 126. As you gather with family over the holiday season, please share the news of this Bill with them and encourage them to write letters or sign the petition as well. Marjorie Stuart invites email requests for copies of the Bill 126 petition. She can be reached at  marjstuart  (A T)
