I have never seen a cemetery laid out like this before. On street view, this cemetery is laid out like a battlefield or war map, with different families in clumps ready to do battle. A very good location and a lot of hard work went into this site to preserve these headstones as much as possible and to make it interesting. Winters in Ontario take their toll. The Shewburgs must have been popular as there are a few buried here on a road with their name. The oldest death looks like Angus Cochrane in 1848. Again, some of these headstones are unreadable and that is very upsetting to me. I did what I could to the pictures I uploaded.
