Long Description:
This cemetery, now over 200 years of age has been pulled back from oblivion by local volunteers, members of the Col. Edward Jessup Branch of the United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada and financial support from local citizens and businesses as well as support from the greater Wiltse Family.

In the ground of this ancient cemetery lies this soldier of the Revolutionary War who would have known the thunder of cannon, the smell of gun smoke, the pall of death and will have had more than one rebel in his gun sight. Here also lies a husband, father, founder, farmer, entrepreneur and pioneer nation builder.

The confirmation of this life has now risen from the earth as pieces of stone, now rejoined to say….In Memory of Benoni Wiltse, born 1758 died 1822 aged 66 years. Rachel lies at his side.

There are over 200 similar stories to be found in this sacred ground.
