The Old Howard Cemetery

Friday night a former island resident asked me about the old Howard cemetery on British Cemetery Road. She was hoping I would write a monthly newsletter about the cemetery. So I did.

There are some interesting stories there -- the woman who lived to be 117 years old, the boy who died before he was born, a sea captain who went west with a wagon train, and a shipwrecked Arab sailor.

You can read our article about the old Howard cemetery here.

    I noticed that Michael Lawrence Piland is buried in the Howard-Wahab cemetery. Was he buried there because he married Lucretia Credle Wahab? Do you know where she was buried?
