Coilbound Edition



This publication deals with St. John's Church and Cemetery at South March, a historic rural burial ground dating back to 1839. Included is a detailed history of the church and burying ground. The transcriptions of memorial stones are complete for all stones on site in 1985.

The oldest sections of St. John's Cemetery constituted the second churchyard in the parish of March, the first being at old St. Mary's, Pinhey's Point. In the mid-nineteenth century St. John's served the interior of March Township and the northwestern part of Nepean . Many Nepean pioneers worshipped and buried here before a Union Church, with graveyard, was built at Bells Corners around 1850.

The cemetery inscriptions were recorded October 5, 1975 by Bruce Elliott, updated December 7, 1982, and checked by E. Marjorie Moodie. That means that transcriptions are of memorial stones erected prior to 1983.
