Canon fire at Col James Kerby Memorial

On Sunday June 19th a memorial service complete with canons, muskets, bag pipes, and trumpets will be held for Colonel Kerby! Among his many accomplishments Colonel Kerby became the town warden of Bertie Township in 1826 and later the first postmaster in the township. Instrumental in establishing St Paul’s Church (Anglican) in Waterloo, he remained a warden of the church until his death.

 

We along with the Second Lincoln Regiment re-enactors hope this memorial remains an annual event.
