Back to HomeFeature Article - June 11, 2009 Cloyne Pioneer CemeteryBy Mary Kelly

For the better part of a year now, a few members of the Cloyne and District Historical Society have been trying to track down who might be buried in the pioneer burying ground in Cloyne. It is the wish of the society and the land o’ Lakes Garden Club, who are partners in this restoration, to try to identify those interred here with as much accuracy as possible. A fire in the Methodist church office destroyed the records between the 1860s and 1899.

Some months ago, an article appeared in this paper outlining the details of the project, along with a list of those whom we thought might have been buried in the cemetery. A further check of the list removed a few names and added a few more. That corrected list appears here.

Because we are hoping to put up a permanent marker in the cemetery this summer, we would like to draw the project to a close. Just before we do that, though, we would like you to look at the list one more time and to double check your family history. Is there anyone in your family who was buried there? Would you have a name and a death date? If so, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

We know that we have only 40 of the 80 people believed to be in this cemetery. Can you help us find any of the others?
