Total records = 164.

These records represent all the known burials, although there are numerous unknown burials in the cemetery, a search has been completed, and no further records are available.

I transcribed all the headstones in the cemetery on the 29th Sep 2001. As I finished I found a plaque just under the name of the cemetery, that had a list of everyone buried there, all it said was "All known burials". I have added any I found no stone for from this list. They are those which have no dates, with a surname and only Initials for the given name/names.

This site was dedicated as a cemetery when Volney Grenier, aged 16 years, was killed in a fall from a horse, during a fox hunt on the 26th Dec 1859. His Parents Mary & Thomas Grenier buried him on this site & divided off 3/4 of an acre of land to be set aside as a family cemetery, over the years, The Grenier family gave permission to other local pioneers to bury their loved ones here also.

The last burial to be conducted here was a Miss Olive Grenier on 16 Jul 1980. Some of the decendants have been given permission to bury ashes of the decendants and to erect small plaques for them these are stated as ashes only. The cemetery is maintained by F A C, and Gods Acre restoration committee, it is in fair condition, a rememberance day is held on the grounds on the last Sunday of June each year.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
