Rita M. and Raymond L. MacDonald

Today I added one headstone photograph to the page of St. Mary’s Anglican Church Cemetery, Shiers Road, Harrigan Cove, Halifax County, NS.



Raymond L.

1928 – 1995


Rita M.

1931 – BLANK

Rest in Peace

I don’t have any further information on this couple. Raymond may be the son of Mary Ann Jordan McDonald and Trueman Lester MacDonald. From the symbols on his headstone, it appears he was a member of the Orange Order.

The F L T in the three links of chain represents Friendship, Love and Truth. This symbol is also used on headstones of Independant Order of Odd Fellows and Freemasonry, however, the archway, snake, eye of Providence (covered by flower), ladder and 2 1/2 are exclusive to the Orange Lodge. The symbols supposedly represent the following

  • Snake – Everlasting Life
  • Archway – Passageway to Heaven
  • Five-point Star – Spirit Rising to Heaven
  • Formula 2 1/2 – Two and a Half Tribes
