*** This is an unregistered cemetery. An unregistered cemetery is one that is not legally recognized and therefore difficult to protect from removal or relocation. To assist in getting this cemetery registered please help the Ontario Genealogical Society & Ontario Historical Society by participating in their letter writing campaign. The date that the burying ground was first established is unknown, but the land was deeded to the church in 1840.

The earliest date found on the existing markers is 1857. The date of the last burial would appear to have been that of Jane Lucas Stump in 1932.

The church which stood on this property was built in 1844 and closed in 1900. In 1915 the building was torn down. Town of Vaughan converted the burying ground into a cairn in 1969.
