Additional Information

The Union United Church Cemetery is situated on Stone Church Road (formerly Colborn Road), one half mile south of the Village of Union, Elgin County, Ontario. It is owned by the Union United Church, and presents an impressive sight with its tall, stately maple and spruce, and well-maintained appearance. It is located on Lot 4, Concession 3, Yarmouth Township, Elgin County, Ontario, (now known as Municipality of Central Elgin).

On June 17th in the year 1850, the Trustees of the Union Wesleyan Methodist Church purchased One and a half acres of land for 15 pounds from John and Pearly Willis. This land could be used for a church site, parsonage or burial ground for the use of members of the Wesleyan Methodist Church. Here the early forefathers were laid to rest.
