North Watertown Cemetery, Watertown

Larry Corbett's Genealogy Pages: This site is has more information on Canadian born interred in this Cemetery. Also noted is that many Canadians migrated to the Watertown area in the first decade of the Twentieth Century. While he mainly deals with Canadians by birth, he also has a full transcription of the Cemetery, from which these were found, excepting the Margaret Jane HARDER listing, who is born in Ontario. Thanks to Lauraine Syrnick who submitted this site.
