Volunteers restore dignity to historically significant N.B. cemetery

‘There are so many of my ancestors’ graves that have been ignored or forgotten’

Slowly, a few persistent volunteers are restoring dignity to a centuries-old cemetery outside Fredericton. 

The group, led by Mary Louise McCarthy, met Saturday to cut back brush that had grown over some of the headstones.

The Wheary graveyard in Keswick is significant to black heritage in the area.
