Have you ever wondered as you passed by the Glen Williams cemetery on Prince Street, who is buried there? The Glen Williams cemetery is an important part of our collective heritage. It represents a priceless record of our past and is a testimony to the continuity of life.
Burials have taken place in this cemetery since 1833, but the cemetery was not officially conveyed to the village until shortly after the death of Benajob Williams in 1851, when his son Charles donated the land as a public burying ground. This cemetery is the resting place for most of the village families no matter their religion. The cemetery is still open and is run by a cemetery board and boasts one of the favourite vantage points overlooking the hamlet.
Union Presbyterian Church and the Glen Williams Cemetery are the last resting place of the settlers and pioneers who built our community. The names on tombstones may be familiar. Some are the names of streets in our hamlet. Pay a visit to these two sacred places and and find yourself surrounded by their stories. Gone but never forgotten.
