South Union Line Cemetery aka Badjeros Union Cemetery

South Union Line Cemetery aka Badjeros Union Cemetery is located in the former township of Osprey within the municipality of Grey Highlands in Grey County, Ontario. (Lot 60 Concession 3 Osprey Township)

Although I have Stiver relatives buried at this cemetery, I have yet to visit this cemetery.

The following photos came to me from Holly at Raeburn Family Odyssey. Some of her family connections are buried there.

Information from Holly --
Wm Stewart b abt 1800 County Monaghan Ireland d abt 26 Jan 1876, emigrated with wife Susan McCormack and children (all born in Ireland) c 1840. Children: Samuel b 1819, John b 1824 , George b 1830 , William b 1831, Mary b 1833, Alex b 1835 , Margaret b 1837, Richard b 1840. Wm & Family lived on the County line of Grey/Simcoe Co in Maple Valley, Osprey Twp Grey County.

The photos were taken by Dorothy Hiltz of Collingwood who has given her permission for these photos to be posted here.

Note: William Stewart's death was not registered until 13 July 1876 by informant John Ferguson of Honeywood. (#003841) 13 July 1876 MS 935 Reel 12, Archives of Ontario

Thank you Holly and Dorothy.
