This work is actually that of a few of us (Primarily John Skehan and I) working on the Tinker lines of Campobello Island. Who this David Tinker relates to is a bit of a mystery still, however, I am starting to suspect that he is the youngest child of David Tinker, brother of William Tinker, who in 1808 files a land petition and notes in that that he is the father of five children all born on Campobello Island. I suspect that individual below could be the first son of that David Tinker however that has not been proven as of yet. Also, where things are speculative, that has been noted.

 

IF there is something wrong in the materials below, please do not hesitate to contact me at rodfleck@olypen.com

From: "Robert Hooper" <robert@campobello.com>To: <lilman@host.king.igs.net>Subject: Campobello Hi Heather,I had previously been in contact with Marilyn Strout concerning the cemeteries on Campobello Island. I had told her of one very old cemetery that was located on "Cooks Point", formally called "Windmill Point" on a lot of the old maps. Last week I went there to see if any old head stones remained and found only three. Some of the older residents here informed me that it was a fairly large area in it's time, however it has been neglected and almost forgotten over time. It's very grown up and difficult to access. I know of a woman here who knows a fair amount about the cemetery and some of it's history. I am hoping to talk to her soon.I am enclosing the information from the remaining three stones and pictures of the same. The information on the stones is listed below.STONE 3 :FrancesWife of David TinkerWho died 15 January 1847Aged 33 yearsSTONE 2 :GeorgeSon of David Frances TinkerWho died March 3 1865Age 23 years 6 months.
