    I grew up in the Newport Hills area, and used to wander the hills around Lake Boren as a kid in the 1970’s and ’80’s.

    It seems that no Chinese grave markers have been found in the Newcastle Cemetery or in the Newcastle area.

    I find this baffling for the following reason: As a kid, I saw gravestones with Han characters carved on them in the woods near Lake Boren. They were green with moss. There were at least half a dozen of them, some fallen over. They left a deep impression on me.

    I would welcome any comment, explanation or questions.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Sadly, the page Judith referenced above no longer exists. I’m getting an error message 404 when clicking on her link. Curious what information it shared…
