Directions

The 1879 Guide Book and Atlas does not show any settlers in this township at that time. The location of this burial place is just south east of Little Bethune Lake.

The following comments were taken from the book, "These Our Ancestors Were", 1974. The condition of their burial places is unknown today, 26 years later.

Leonard George Westland
Died July 21st, 1931
Age 76

This lot is in a very dark wooded area. One can just see the cedar railing around the crib.

Emma M. Ford
Wife of George Lakes
Died August 11th, 1881
Age 24 years, 11 months

The area is so darkly wooded it is difficult to get a clear picture of her tombstone.
