Behind the former Presqu'Ile ["Presk-eel"] Military Post in Carleton County are ten gravestones in a small privately-owned graveyard. The gravestone of one our Royal West India Rangers was photographed here recently:

"Arthur B Walsh Esq
Died
Oct 24, 1842
Age 49 yrs
Son of George Walsh Esq
of Dublin Ireland."
RWIR Lt. Arthur Blaney Walsh gravestone Neighbour Mike McCatten and a relative pick RWIR Lieutenant Walsh's gravestone off the forest floor for a photograph Saturday 5 May 2007. Thanks to Norm DeMerchant for these photos and the Walsh gravestone transcript. NEW
This privately-owned graveyard has become a small forest surrounded by a plowed field. If you have a copy of a clear transcript of the names and dates on these gravestones please contact us. Garrison Graveyard, south of Florenceville, New Brunswick
Eliza Nicholson Most names have no apparent connection with the Rangers. However one oft-repeated name, Nicholson, was the maiden name of Mrs. Margaret Walsh. Photo by Norm DeMerchant. NEW
Site of Presqu'ile military garrison, New Brunswick (Canada)

Some British regiments stopped here beside the Saint John River, New Brunswick, before settling nearby. This post appears on a map & was described by Raymond. We are told this is now a "pull out" on Highway 105 near Presqu'Ile Stream. Thanks to Lezlie Carson and Bill Flynn for the photo. Thanks to Norm DeMerchant for recent images, from Fort Presqu'Ile and its graveyard. Please share any RWIR material with us.
