Everyday, I drive past a tiny old cemetery in what used to be Temperanceville, at the corner of Bathurst Street and King Road. Most days, I think that one day I should see who is buried here, when they lived and when they died. Finally I did.

According to our Richmond Hill Public Library, the land that the cemetery rests on was deeded to the Presbyterian Church in 1853 by James Stewart. The stones in the cemetery are all either members of the Stewart family or descendants and in-laws.

The graves include:
