Did You Know?Acadia - Did you know? Approximately 6,000 Acadians were deported from mainland Nova Scotia in 1755... If they were not demolished or burned by British troops, churches and chapels gradually disappeared from the landscape,. In some cases, accidental discoveries or archaeological digs have revealed the location of former parish cemeteries... There is no proof that the Acadians who lived in Port-Royal, Grand-Pré or elsewhere, used stone monuments to mark their graves... Very few 18th century documents refer to the appearance of Acadian cemeteries, but those that do indicate that Acadians before the Deportation marked their graves with wooden crosses.
