      Cemetery notes and/or description:
      This is an small abandoned cemetery at the front of a farm field on the Willoughby Farm which is located at 379 County Road 17, 5.4 kms south of the town of Smiths Falls. It is located in Wolford Township, Grenville County, Ontario.

      This cemetery is not well maintained. The grass is very long and almost all headstones are lying on the ground, covered in grass (as of April 2014). The cemetery is fenced with a wire fence. It was transcribed in 1963 by Mrs. Alice Hughes. At that time 11 headstones were found. In addition to the 11 headstones, 4 plain field stone markers were also observed.

      Historically this land was Lot 30, Concession C, Wolford Township, Grenville County, Ontario.
