Only after 43 years this pioneer cemetery closed [ 1838-1881 , which is on the gate but the town website says this cemetery closed in 1870]. Members of the Tillson family are buried here in fenced plot. All pioneer cemeteries will have to be compared to this one. It has all names and dates on a cairn as you enter with a lettered map and information plaque, as well. Small stones around the headstones minimise growth. From hundreds of pioneer cemeteries I have visited this is the best or one of the best, in this province.

Thanks Paul for noticing, You don't think I talk that way? lol. This is from the bottom of a headstone where they have a few nice words, and where I usually get the title from. Some are very bitter 'like in death's cold arms ' for example.
