Johnson Cemetery

         It is barely visible from the busy #403 highway and is located on property at the corner of Johnson Rd. and the 403 a short distance west of Brantford, Ontario.
I have been told the cemetery is on property that was a land grant to a Johnson family and had remained in family ownership until quite recently.
The cemetery itself is set quite far off Johnson Road and is fenced off with concrete posts topped with large metal eye loops through which a very heavy wire cable has been passed. The grass is neatly cut and at some time, someone has taken the time to repair damages to broken stones and to place others atop a concrete pad approximately in the center of the burial grounds. The repairs appear to be quite old. There is one granite gravemarker and almost all the remaining ones are of the old, soft substance that time and weather make impossible to decipher. Some of the markers are easier to read from their photographs than the actual stones themselves.
I did not find the 4x great aunt Jane Dawdy Ellison I'd hoped would be buried there but I have the great satisfaction of being able to photograph this little burial ground while it is still intact. There are obvious indications of construction reaching to within inches along the side of the cemetery with an opening in the fence. I presume this to be the original gateway.
