St Thomas Anglican Church Cemetery is located on the church property at the south east corner of Bridge Street and Church street in downtown Belleville Ontario
Burials at this church began in the early 1820's. They continued until the late 1870's. Approximately 80 stones remain today. In 1989 it was discovered that there were 579 grave shafts containing 607 remains.
The stones have worn with time and many are hard to read. I will be posting photos as I transcribe them. Please let me know if you see any names that need correcting. firstname.lastname@example.org

Legend has it that the ghost of Captain James MacNabe who was killed in the rebellion of 1837, wanders through the cemetery. More about this.
A story written in The Belleville Intellegencer in 2009 seems to be about the same Captain. Although the name in the article is McNabb, the date on the stone seems to match the one in the story.
