Hurshman Headstone at Dutch Settlement

In the summer of 2006 I visited St. George’s Anglican Church and its surrounding cemetery in Dutch Settlement, (on the edge of) Halifax County, Nova Scotia, Canada. While there I captured this photograph of a faded wooden cross marking Joan Hurshman’s grave (1937 – 1997). I haven’t been back since to check on the cross, but given the condition it was in seven years ago, it probably is no longer legible.
