Eliza & Job Wahab

Eliza Bradley Howard Wahab (1808-1870) and her husband Job Wahab (1802-1860) had 15 children. Several of their children died young; many of the others eventually moved to the mainland. Eliza, Job, and several of their children are buried in the large George Howard cemetery near the British Cemetery.

I know many of our readers have seen Eliza & Job's tombstones which are close to the paved road, near their three sons, Jonathan, Job, & Warren. Now, thanks to the photographs above, perhaps you will have a mental image the next time you visit their cemetery.
