GPS: Can you help map this cemetery?

Registered to Township of Guelph/Eramosa. This cemetery has been named incorrectly by the township. The family, even to this day, has always spelled their surname as OSBURN. This farm lot was originally owned by William and Lydia Osburn who were both born in New York prior to 1800. They moved to Upper Canada before 1820 and are mentioned in Ancaster, Wentworth County, records. In 1821 they obtained Lot 1, Concession 4, in Eramosa Township and moved there with their first child, Abraham. History books mention that Lydia was the second white woman in Eramosa. William died 16 Oct 1831 and was the first known burial on this property, though there are believed to be some infants/children buried before this date. Lydia died on 26 Apr 1874 and is also buried in this cemetery. Their only known children are: Abraham (1821-1888) who married Donabella Dredge (1819-1893). He inherited the farm and cemetery after his father's death. Margaret (b:1824) who married Conrad John Hotrum of Ancaster and died in Hamilton (no known grave). Peter William (b: 1830).
