Deaths in families of early settlers of 1819 in densely wooded Esquesing, meant they had no alternative but to use the Native People?s burial grounds which were clear of vegetation on high sandy knolls. One of these was on Christian Barnes?, born 1771, near the border of his first 100 acres through which flowed two rivers. This is on the north side of what is now Maple Avenue west, behind the Municipal complex. Some of Christian and Margaret Barnes' children are buried here. After Christian sold the property, his family was buried at the cemetery of St. Johns Anglican Church in Stewarttown. - page 90A - Lucy Emslie, The history of St. John's Anglican Chuch (Town of Esquesing 1821).
