Cemetery notes and/or description:
SE Lot 11, Concession 4, Nelson Township

Located on the north-west corner of Walker's Line and Derry Road, DeForest Pioneer Cemetery has about 75 headstones.

The cemetery was originally a family plot named after Abraham DeForest and his wife Elizabeth who emigrated from New York State in the early 1800s and made their home on the 200-acre parcel of land where the cemetery is located.

Abraham DeForest's marker is one of the earliest (dated 1842). The cemetery grew to include other families in the surrounding area and includes names such as Thomson, Sweeney and Campbell. Most are prominent families from the Milton area from 1849 to 1910.

The cemetery is maintained by the Town of Milton.
