"Set on the southern slopes of the Niagara Escarpment near Cheltenham, Boston Mills Cemetery is a designated heritage site and one of the oldest cemeteries in the Town of Caledon, and is still accepting interments. Although land for the cemetery was not formally deeded until 1858, the first recorded burial was that of Welsh pioneer David Williams in 1823. Killed by a falling tree while clearing his land, it is said that Williams was buried in its bark. The cemetery was enlarged in 1896 and again in 1908, and in the 1930s the existing stone and iron entrance gate was erected. In 1966, the Cemetery Board purchased the adjacent school property, and the former one-room stone schoolhouse, S.S. #8 Chinguacousy, was converted into a mortuary. From its earliest limestone markers to today's granite monuments, this beautifully situated community cemetery contains a wealth of local genealogical information.
