CEMETERY

In 1793, Harcar Lyons and his wife, Marcy Peers, widow of Thomas Roseborough came from Warren, Sussex County, New Jersey. They petitioned Governor Simcoe for a grant of land and settled in East Flamborough.

In 1838 Joseph Lyons, a son of Harcar, inherited Lot 3 in Concession 1, East Flamborough, when his father died. The East Flamborough map in the Wentworth County Atlas of 1875 shows a church on Lot 3, Concession 1. This is East Plains United Church, 375 Plains Road East, Aldershot.

The memorial stone for Joseph Lyons in this cemetery reads: "Joseph Lyons gave this land in 1843 and built the first church on it mostly at his own expense - died April 1872 aged 72 years" (he died in Minnesota).
