James Yeo – from Devon to Quebec

A headstone in Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec tells some of the story of a long life in two continents: ‘James Yeo born in Tavistock Devonshire England Apr 30 1830, died here March 11 1923 aged 93’.

The memorial is in the churchyard of the Anglican church of St Bartholmew and gives no other information. The nearest matching baptism of a James Yeo was in 1831 at Tawstock to parents of Elias Yeo and Mary Mock.
