Mabou


About

Here is a rare thing indeed—a monument for a former slave, one of Mabou’s first settlers! Pegg, as she was called, was born into slavery in Georgia, USA, around 1770. She came to Nova Scotia with a Loyalist family in 1784. Pegg died in 1815, a free woman, and was buried in the Mabou First Settlers Graveyard on the Rankinville Road. A monument to her memory was erected in 1999 by the descendants of the family who had enslaved her.
