Wish to present my readings of Burnside Cemetery. It is located at the corner of Burnside Rd. (TR29) & Jug Street Rd. (CR22). This is a small and well cared for township cemetery. Which contains burial dates ranging from 1836 to 1970s. As always, I have made every effort to transcribe the stones carefully. Some are so weathered it was difficult to read them, others were so deteriorated that only partial readings were possible. If you have additional information improving these readings, will be honored to update this page. Readings start nearest Burnside Rd. & Jug Street Rd. facing west, my readings are from right to left (north to south) I am responsible for both the readings and photographs in this report. Robert M. Sizelove, Sr. 19 June, 2004.
