Calling all Lanark Geneologists for any information please!





Update-Thanks to Claudia Tait we found it.

King Cemetery


George Allen Chenier Sr. emailed me a few days ago and is wondering about a certain grave in the Lanark Highlands. This is what he wrote:

“Just a bit north of where we live back here in the Lanark Highlands, there is a lot of community forest and this is where I found an interesting grave sight. It appears as if maybe the township may have taken care of this over the years. It has a falling down rail fence surrounding it and a white metal gate and one lone head stone that reads”:



DIED JAN. 22, 1895 AT 79 YEARS


JOHN APRIL 24,1850



PETER SEPT. 26, 1866

MARGARET FEB. 26, 1871

I found this to be very interesting because of the location, and the years, I am curious to know. Thank you.

Anyone have an information?

    Can you ask Mr. Chenier the original township, Concession and lot # the graves are found on. This will help a lot since Lanark Highlands is an amalgamated township and the burial site could be just about anywhere.

    Thank you Karen Prytula
