My ancestor, David Finlay, is buried in Beverley Township, Ontario. His tombstone says he was 76 years old, and he died in 1881, making his birth 1804 or 05. The tombstone says he was a native of County Cavan. He was a protestant. One of his son's, David, (my ggrandfather) is in the Ontario Wesleyan Baptismal Register in 1850 but David Senior eventually became a baptist, probably because they built a church near his farm. These Finlays were all farmers, so I doubt that they would be buried in Cavan Town. My ancestors also were active in the Orange and Masonic Lodges. What kind of dates were on the tombstones you saw? Just curious, how does one determines if a tombstone in Cavan belonged to a catholic or protestant....protestants were a small minority in the early 1800's. Thanks for all you help.
