This is the newer of the two cemeteries on the island. It's located on Twp. Road 164 (Meechen Rd.) near Catawba Avenue and situated on the southern side of Island, not too far from the airport. Additional overview of cemetery by R.M.Sizelove.


I wish to present the transcriptions of the ancestral loved ones buried at Mapleleaf Cemetery. For a point of reference, this is the southwest area of the island, not far from the Lime Kiln Miller Ferry docks & island airport. I am solely responsible for the transcriptions and accompanying photo documentation. As always my goal is to remain deliberate and careful to read the stones correctly, fortunately because this is more recent cemetery, most of the memorials are easily read, however, a few of the older memorials have deteriorated, through weatherization to a state rendering them difficult at best to be 100% correct. Please feel free to use these readings as a source for your research, but don't substitute this for good courthouse or state records. Although memorials contain good spellings and dates, they can sometimes contain errors. I will be pleased to add or make corrections to this report, providing the information you send, contains provable facts directly concerning the ancestral loved one buried here. My readings are preliminary and are not in any organized order of rows. I plan to return to add additional readings later this summer. Want to thank Elizabeth Daly, for her kindness in sharing additional information concerning some individuals buried here. Here updates will be noted with the use of an asterisk *symbol. Robert M.
