Registered to Township of Woolwich. From Tim Campbell: Elmira Union Cemetery is a municipal burying ground located on part of Lot 89, German Company Tract. According to local history the first burial took place in 1863, and it appears that the cemetery was established in response to a need for a non-Lutheran burial ground. The earliest burial date on any legible, existing monument is 1871.
