  1. My great great great great grandfather John Peyton and great great great grandfather John Peyton Jr. are buried on Exploits Island (Burnt Island). I wish I could make a trip out there and look for his grave. Did you mark down any of the names on the grave stones?

    • Hey Andrea,
      I didn’t transcribe any of the stones, but I’m pretty sure other folks have and that the transcriptions are available online somewhere. If not, I could try to decipher some for you when next I’m down there in the summer. A lot of the stones in that particular cemetery are relatively worn down, being fairly exposed to the elements (the other four cemeteries are sheltered and and in the woods). Are you looking for anyone other than the Peytons?
