The picture to the left is the tombstone I came across in the Fairview Graveyard, and I don't know what it was about standing by this tombstone but I was so moved.
I decided one day I would visit a graveyard in Halifax which was the resting place of a well known Brother from Nova Scotia, the grave site of Alexander Keith. I managed to locate the resting place of Alexander Keith, and also noticed that in this graveyard, there were MANY departed Brethren here, and I decided at that moment as I saw alot of Masonic tombstones that I would pay my respects to as many departed Brethren from this graveyard and visit as many of their resting places as I could.
I am now on a quest to visit as many Brethren as I can here in Nova Scotia. I brought my Digital Camera with me to the graveyard with me so I can take pictures of these tombstones, and pay my respects to these Departed Brethren.
The picture to the left is the gravesite of Alexander Keith.
For those unfamiliar with Alexander Keith, he was Mayor of Halifax, Nova Scotia, three times, and was a member of the Legislative Council for 30 years.
Alexander Keith was also a prominent member of Freemasonry.
