Fort St. James Anglican Cemetery

(referred to locally as The Hudson's Bay Cemetery)
Some research done on this cemetery by member Maureen Hebert: 
1. From the “Fort St. James Historic Attractions” website: Hudson's Bay Cemetery The Hudson's Bay cemetery is the oldest remnant of the early fur trading in Fort St James. Not much is known about its history and content, or even when the first person was buried here. However, it stills tells of a life lived here in Fort St. James. The graveyard is located on Stuart Drive adjacent to the Anglican Church. I have no idea if the Anglican Church is connected to this cemetery or not. I just know the cemetery was there long before the church which wasn't constructed until the early 1900's. 
2. From A Walk Through Time Produced by: The Friends of The Fort St. James National Historical Site Society 
The Fur Trader Burial Ground, also known as the Hudson’s Bay Cemetery, is the oldest remnant of the early fur trade in Fort St. James. Over time the cemetery has weathered but it still tells an interesting history of Fort St. James.

1. From: A Walk Through Time  
The second Peter Ogden was a superintendent of New Caledonia from 1856–68, and his son Peter Ogden from 1869–70. 
 2. From: Diary of Fort St. James – Story of Growth and Development in a small town in central British Columbia. Copyright 1990 
 Peter Skene Ogden was superintendent from 1834–44, and then left to take a position with the HBC in Vancouver. He died there 10 years later at the age of 60. He was a factor in the 1830’s, had a son born in 1817 also named Peter, who also had a son by the same name. The last two died in 1870 within a few days of each other and are buried in the small cemetery by the Anglican Church. 
Headstone at the Fur Trader Burial Ground: The headstone of the senior Ogden refers to him as “Peter S. Ogden.” However he is not the Peter Skene Ogden. 
Coincidentally, I had a conversation with an Ogden descendant at a restaurant in Vanderhoof on the way home from this trip and she told me she believes they are not descended from Peter Skene Ogden but were ‘given’ the name as apparently was the custom back in those days. Sort of a transition time from their native names to names that white people could pronounce. And in turn, the native elders could not pronounce the 'd' in ‘Ogden’ and it became ‘Ogen’.
