The Boat Yard Cemetery of Lower Bank

There aren’t many companies whose employees pass the burial site of the founder but Cavalier Boatworks is one such company. The plaque by the headstone tells the story.

    I am a descendant of Yoos Souy. I was there today, March 19, 2022 and noticed his stone is leaning much worse than a few years ago. Do you know who I can contact to possibly remedy this?

    I am a descendant of John Cavileer, and also grateful that his resting place has been preserved for 280 years. Amazing!

      Do you know if John Cavileer have a son named Charles Cavileer b. 1749?

        …Or if John had a brother named Charles b. 1749? I think I’m seeing two different Johns with different birth years. Wondering if they might connect to my brick wall.

          John Cavalier 1742- 1813
          Charles W. Cavalier 1770 – 1842
          John Cavalier 1781 – 1839
          And others.
