Coilbound Edition

Transcriptions of the memorial stones in this cemetery were recorded by Ottawa Branch of The Ontario Genealogical Society volunteers Fern Small and Ken Collins in the summer of 1973 and first published in late 1975.

This cemetery is located on land which was set aside by a Mr. Spinning. Across the road, on the edge of his property he also permitted the building of a school in which Presbyterian Church services and Sunday School were held until a church was built closer to the village. This land was later acquired by the Horne family but the ownership was never transferred to the United Church. This is known as the Point Alexandria Cemetery. At a later date Mr Bruce Horne gave land to the United Church. This is the new part of the cemetery and is known as the United Church Cemetery.

The whole area is locally known as Horne's Cemetery and officially as Point Alexandria Cemetery.

The inscriptions on the 163 gravestones that remained in the cemetery at the time of this transcription (summer 1973) accounted for 315 burials.

The earliest burial recorded was that of Aribella Bush who died in 1843. The oldest person buried in the cemetery was John Unwin, who died in 1852 at the age of 98 years. "John Unwin served in the British Army during the war of 1812 - 14".
