Ep167 The General Protestant Cemetery with Suzanne Sexty

Suzanne Sexty  has been researching the St. John’s General Protestant Cemetery and the people buried there since her retirement in 2001. She first moved to Newfoundland in 1968 to work at the Henrietta Harvey Library at Memorial University, and has worked at different libraries in the province and the United States. Suzanne has also recently co-authored a book titled Long Overdue: SS Beverly (1885-1918) about a mercantile ship and crew lost during The First World War. She chats with fellow taphophile Dale Jarvis about the history of the cemetery, and some of its storied inhabitants.
