Long Description:
Overstoneville Independent Cemetery
First Location 1902 - 1925
The Independent Greek Church (also referred to as the Ukrainian Evangelical Church) was founded in 1902. Services were held in homes until a church was built in 1908. Petro Antonichuk (Antonijzuk) donated land for a cemetery here and the first burials were probably in 1902. Prior to that, burials took place on the settlers' land.
The first recorded meeting of the cemetery / church board was held December q5, 1902. Membership stood at thirty-six, non-members of the cemetery/church could inter their loved ones here for a fee. Burial plots were allotted on a first come basis with no designated order. Twin babies were buried together. The twenty-eight known grave sites may have more than twenty-eight individuals. Around 1925 the cemetery was moved to the hilltop because this was prone to seasonal flooding.
Forgotten by mankind but not by God. This memorial is in remembrance of those pioneers who rest in the unmarked graves in this cemetery. Lovingly remembered by the generations that followed you.
Remember me, O Lord, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance. Psalm 106 v. 4&5
