The stone is not located in a cemetery but on the old Daw property in
Port de Grave. To find it, drive past St. Mark's church and take a

headstone, along with that of his brother George (& wife Frances),
and some other unmarked rocks show the burial place of other Dawe
ancestors. This was the first time in my research that I had come across
graves not in a churchyard or designated cemetery. I was amazed at how
well these stones have survived the harsh and eroding salty wind for
over 200 years.
