Ruscom United Church Cemetery (Old) - Partial Transcription

If you have more transcriptions for this cemetery and would like to add them here you can email them to me and I will add them.

This cemetery is located at 2425 County Rd. #46 (just west of County Rd. #31)

This is an old cemetery, much of the edge is grown over, I managed to transcribe most of the stones that were in the underbrush, but I may have missed some. The ones I did manage to get to I had to crawl on my hands and knees to get to them! There were a lot of broken and worn stones that no matter what I did I couldn't read them.

Ruscom United Church Monument

Built on this spot in 1855; dedicated to the Glory of God as a Methodist Church. Moved to Ruscom in 1889 where it served until 1985, when the remaining congregation amalgamated with Woodslee United Church. The building of bricks is gone but the living sanctuary continues Jesus is our Salvation. We have become his dwelling place 1855 - 1985.
