Registered to Township of Southgate. Mount Zion Methodist Cemetery is nothing more than an unmarked section of bush surrounded by a farmer's field in the Township of Southgate. The farm is located on the corner of Southgate Rd 14 and Southgate Side Rd 61 and belongs to Dale Watson. There is a fenced-in wooded section on the edge of the farm that belongs to the township and is the cemetery. Dale remembers playing in that cemetery in the 1960s and remembers seeing one toppled gravestone. Rumour has it that James Nickle and his daughter Elizabeth are the only recorded burials within that cemetery, but a black school teacher was buried just outside the fence. James Nickle d. 1856 age 42 yrs, his dau. Elizabeth d.Nov 18 1864 age 16 yrs.
