Dissectionist Some stones have fallen over or lost bits, but others have been repaired with now-rusty brackets. Info can be found on the stones here: http://geneofun.on.ca/cems/ON/ONGRY10907

Dissectionist This is a lovely little cemetary. The words on a lot of the stones have so worn away as to be unreadable, but maybe about half are still able to be read. There are some child stones but not as many as expected, considering how old the cemetary was and how high the mortality rate was at that time; most stones are for elderly folks. The grass was mowed fairly recently to when we stopped by, so though the cemetary is no longer in use, someone is still taking efforts to make it look nice.
