Campbellville Burying Ground

McLaren Road North, Campbellville, Ontario, Canada

This pioneer cemetery rests by a river and a railway track,  both lifelines for transportation and industry in Pioneer times. The majority of the gravestones memorialize natives of Scotland, and there is a large number of stones commemorating the Campbell family.

Verses from the cemetery
i
Jesus has called the mother home
Her flesh lies mouldering in the tomb
God grant her offspring may be blest
And  meet her in eternal rest.

ii
And he asked who gathered this flower
And the gardener answered the Master
And his fellow servant held his peace.

DeForrest Pioneer Cemetery

Located at Walker’s Line and Derry Road in Burlington, Ontario, Canada.

This is a tiny overgrown cemetery on an incline holding a dozen or more forgotten gravestones dating back to the 1800’s. Most of the inscriptions are illegible due to erosion of the soft stone. The site is believed to be haunted and is regularly visited by Paranormal Societies.

1851 stone:
“While on earth I did remain
Suffered much with grief and pain
But when the Lord tho’t it best
he took me to eternal rest.”
