Cemetery notes and/or description:
Hughson Cemetary 2004

The Hughson Cemetary is located on L.20, C. 1, Sheg. Twp. off the farm of Abraham and Mary Hughson on what was known as the Hughson Side Rd. This cemetary was given to the Trustees of the Manitowaning Congregation of the Methodist Church. The trustees signing were: John Phillips, Thomas Phillips, Thomas E. Walker, Thomas Leonard Hughson, and A. Hughson.

The cemetary is described as commencing at the S. E. corner of said lot and running northerly on L. 20 for 10 rods, be the same more or less, then westerly 16 rods, to the place of beginning. One acre more or less.

Although it was not deeded until 1900, the earliest stone dates back to 1887. Most of the people buried in this cemetary came from the surrounding area. There have been no buriels here since the early 1900's.

The cemetary lay neglected for many years with the fences broken so that cattle knocked down and broke most of the stones. A new gated fence was placed around the cemetary about 20 years ago. The head-stones were placed by a big tree.

In 1995, a sign was added and some more repair work done by the Municipality under Section 25.

The rest of L. 20 is still in the Hughson name after 106 years.
