Oldest Known Interment

1875 - Margaret Mitz; There is another interment with a death date of 1847. I question this date since there were no known settlers in Ryde Township at that time. Unless the person's burial was relocated, I suspect that it may be a misprint in "These Our Ancestors Were".

Directions

From Gravenhurst, drive north along highway 11 to Doe Lake Road. Turn east onto Doe Lake Road and drive to Barkway Road, about 13 km. Turn south onto Barkway Road and you will reach the village of Barkway about 3 km. The cemetery is 2.5 km south of the village, past the Old Barkway Cemetery.
