GPS: Can you help map this cemetery?

Articles published in the Windsor Star on August 5, 2011 tell of a pioneer cemetery located under the former Ecole St Jean Baptist. Archaeologists have determined that the cemetery once contained 130 burials and were buried between 1830 and 1860. Most of the interred are presumed to have been moved to another cemetery but some remain. From Douglas Gammon: It sat on the lot right next to St. John The Baptist Church.
