THERE IS NO PROOF THAT OLIVE IS BURIED HERE, BUT ALL INDICATIONS POINT TO IT. SHE DIED AT EXACTLY THE TIME THAT BURIALS WERE BEING ACCEPTED HERE, AND SHE IS NOT AT THE OTHER LOCAL FAMILY CEMETERY, BOND HEAD UNITED CHURCH CEMETERY.

......

Olive West was born in Bond Head, West Gwillimbury, Ontario and died in the same place. She died on Cancer as per West family notes. Olive had an illegitimate child named Nettie West, who lived with her brothers family after her death. We do not know who the father was or any circumstances of her short life. It's probable/possible that Olive had a mental condition throughout her life. In the 1871 Canadian census, she is said to be of unsound mind because of "fits."
