Church / Denomination: Methodist Episcopal Church

Registered to City of Brampton. West side, south of Bovaird Drive. This land was donated by Abel & Sarah Stafford on July 1st, 1852 to John Wilcox, Thomas Swain, Matthew Pearen, Andrew Starret and John Modeland who were the Trustees of their local congregation of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Canada. The land was donated specifically for the use of the Congregation as a burial ground, and for the erection of a meeting house. Apparently there had been a meeting house built on the property circa 1850, and perhaps the deeding of the land was just formalizing what had become common practice, as there are some burials dating from the 1840's. There obviously was some type of Board of Trustees over the years, however attempts at trying to locate the descendants of the same have proved fruitless. In the Brampton Conservator newspaper, in the 7th June 1928, and in the 6th of June 1929 issues, there are articles concerning the annual local clean up of the cemetery. The corner stone from the Church edifice has been mounted into a commemorative cairn, and it simply states: "Mount Olivet W.M. Church, A.D. 1869". A tablet was prepared some 30 years ago, and was mounted into this same cairn - apparently after yet another clean up of the grounds, and this states: Mount Olivet In memory of The Pioneers who built the first Wesleyan Methodist Church on this site 1847 - 1950. Erected by J. Albert Reed, Elliott Snyder, Clarence Cook, Gordon M. Crawford, Eli Crawford.
