Bristow Pioneer Cemetery
Elmira, Woolwich Township, Waterloo County, Ontario

Contributed by Leslie Nutbrown, Oct 02, 2007 . Total records = 20.

The Bristow Pioneer Cemetery is on the south side of highway 86 at the edge of town on the road from Saint Jacobs to Elmira.

This little cemetery is maintained by the Township of Woolwich. The stones have been arranged in two neat rows with one larger headstone to the side. It has been enclosed with a fence and gate. It was used from the mid 1850s to the mid 1870s. Some stones are difficult to read

Susan Nutbrown and I read this cemetery on Sep 24, 2007 and made a complete recording of all legible stones.

    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.
