Notes for Abraham Trites
In 1787 he was listed amongst the Town Officers as “Town Clerk” and “Fence Viewer”. When thistles became a problem in 1797 he was appointed “Inspector of Thistles”.117

In the 1803 Moncton Census there were 4 children under 10 and 6 children over age 10 in the household. Son Solomon was reported separately at that time.90

“Abraham Trite’s home was located near where the Kenneth E. Spence Memorial Home now stands (35 Atlantic Baptist Ave.), i.e. on the north shore of the Petitcodiac River, a short distance east of Mill Creek”164

Tombstone inscription in Wilson Cemetery says he died in his 59th year, thus providing the estimated birth year of 1752.105
Re: Wilson Cemetery:
“Situated on the Salisbury Road, opposite the Atlantic Baptist College, and is now within the City of Moncton boundaries. The total area would probably be about half an acre. The College has co-operated with us in keeping the premises in good condition during the past year (1976).
Prior to 1970 it was a mass of trees, weeds and brambles, and the grave stones were in a mess. John N. Lutes and J. Hugh MacCrae started collecting money for improving the area and eventually the Michael Lutz (1766) Descendants became interested, and as a result we now have a well cared for cemetery, plus a memorial stone (not listed on the attached sheet) in honour of Michael and Katherine Lutz, who first settled on that particular grant (1927 acres) on or about 1766, and whom we firmly believe to be buried there.

Signed: Allen W. Lutes (Pres. of the Wilson Cemetery Ltd.)”
