The first known survey of this cemetery was done by noted genealogist Dr. Allan E. Marble on May 22, 1967. Per his usual procedure, he did not give the cemetery a name but instead assigned it an identifying number. For this cemetery, the number was 45. He recorded the location as Hillsburn.

At a later date, Genweb volunteers transcribed Dr. Marble's survey notes and made them available online at Rootsweb. At that time, the volunteers named it " Hillsburn Cemetery" but, in the cemetery index, they listed the name simply as "Hillsburn". They cited the location as Hillsburn.

Dr. Marble transcribed 48 headstones containing 94 inscriptions. The oldest identifiable stone is from 1887. This is an active cemetery, so the number of headstones is now greater than Dr. Marble's count in 1966. He noted that the headstones were generally in good condition.

DIRECTIONS: This cemetery is located on the south side of Shore Road West, across from Civic #3781.
