From the Orangeville Banner dated 16-May-1935
Earlier this Spring the trustees of
Caledon cemetery held a get-to-gether of the plot-holders and other citizens
interested in the beautifying of God's acre, where sleep the pioneers of
this district--the fathers and mothers, grandparents and great-grandparents
who settled in this vicinity when this country was new. As we entered the
silent city of the dead we noticed a monument erected to the memory of
William Bell. The inscription on the stone stated that Mr. Bell and his
brother were the first settlers to make their home in this neighborhood. He
died at the early age of 25 years and was buried in the Caledon cemetery in
January 1825. This seems to be the seems to have been, as far as we can
learn, the first interment in this sacred place. Near this plot is the grave
of Mrs. Stubbs, aged 103 years, who died in 1835, but the oldest person
buried in the cemetery is undoubtedly Edward Clarke, aged 116 years. Equally
as remarkable as Mr. Clark's great age is the fact that he was over 90 years
of age when he left Ireland, crossed the ocean and made his way to Caledon,
where he lived for twenty-six years longer. We were informed that this
venerable pioneer is the great grandfather of Mr. E. E. Wilson, the present
treasurer of Caledon township. Mr. D. N. Potter, of the 5th line, east, is

The original pioneer section of the Cemetery was
donated by Andrew Scott on August 5,1 822. This land was a part of a Crown
Grant dated during the reign of King George the Fourth. The remainder of
the Cemetery was acquired on January 8, 1892. The cemetery has always been
administered by a volunteer Board of Trustees, as it is owned by plot
working on a project that is capturing all the war graves in Canada for WWI &
WWII. I was recently asked to get a grave in the Churchville Cemetery. In
hunting for where it was, I found your web site and thought I would send you the
information I gathered during my hunt. I took pictures of some of the nicer
stones. Please let me know if this is the type of information you need, or what
else I should gather as I will be hitting 5 or 6 other pioneer graveyards during
the next two months.
I also work on the National Inventory of Canadian Military Memorial project which is tracking down all the cenotaphs across Canada. I have started mapping where they are located because there is no listing of where they are located. Looking for the cemeteries gives similar problems. Some notes have them located at this lot on this line, but unless you have the correct maps, you can't find it. I am including a map to show where the cemetery is located.

The original settlers of Woodhill and the surrounding area were interred here. Woodhill was a thriving rural hamlet by 1819.

Shiloh Primitive Methodist Cemetery
Shiloh Primitive Methodist Cemetery is located at Lot 17
Concession 10, Toronto Gore Twp,. Peel County. The one acre parcel was on
the Robert Hart farm there was also a Primitive Methodist Church. He was a JP.
School and Church Trustee, a Methodist Lay Preacher, Orangeman, reformer. He
came to Canada in 1834 with his bride Jane Watson. The location is on the West
side of Hwy #50 and Mayfield Rd (Hwy 7). When I first started the Hart family
history I had great difficulty finding
who was responsible for the property as Robert Hart and wife Jane Watson's monument was so overgrown with a bush that it was not visible from the road. Most of the stones had been removed to another location but the Hart stones were not. Hwy 50 traffic is fast and stopping was too dangerous as the shoulder was soft and the very short drive to the gate only a few feet in
was risky so I parked at the Hart farm a few hundred feet north and took my chances and walked back. I could not get pictures because of the neglect and the growth.
George Tavenders 1967 book "From This Year Hence" said the cemetery was maintained by the Dept of Highways I tried in vain to get some information, then called the City of Brampton and talked to a clerk who disclaimed any knowledge of it. Finally I did find that the city is indeed responsible and they had someone go in and cut the brush back, it was not a very good job but I understood it was preliminary as there was some sort of centennial coming up. I did not take anything with me to clean the monument so I do not know if the pic's are suitable. That corner will probably be developed before too long my concern is that the cemetery and the history of the early settlers will not be lost.
One side of the monument Sacred to the memory of Jane Watson.....native of Yorkshire 1814-1889
The front side (o3&04) Sacred to the memory of Robert Hart JP native of Allerston Yorkshire 1812- 4 April 1870
(08) Mary Hart 1843-1848
