Photo of the tombstone engraving for James Airth, a blind violinist. James died in Toronto when he went there to continue his occupation of playing the violin on a theatre tour. He died Dec 6, 1851 after being in Canada for a short time and is buried in Toronto.His buriel place was discovered by a relative, David Hull, in about 2000. As Mount Pleasant Cemetery did not open until 1876, it is possible that James was buried in Potters Field, York Cemetery and moved to Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
A group decided to put the information about James on the back of his son`s tombstone in Thomson Hill Cemetery, Renfrew Ontario. His son was Henry, also known as Michigan Harry.
