Hillsborough Church and Cemetery

Charles Joseph OSMAN married Laura Esther TOMKINS in Hillsborough, Albert County, New Brunswick, Canada on 23rd August 1877. The Tomkins family had started the Canadian Gypsum Mill there and Charles became Company Manager and Shareholder. The two families are buried next to each other in the cemetery there.

This photo shows the general layout:

and this shows their daughter's memorial:

Apparently the family helped to finance the church:

It seems that this is where my grandparents met. Charles' niece, Muriel Alice Sophia Osman, was visiting her uncle and the vicar there was Arthur William Evelyn McComb.
