I have found the listing for my grandparents James McIntosh and Annie Shipley in your document. However, I could not locate where exactly in the graveyard they are buried since they have no marker. Do you know where or can direct me to a document that shows exactly where each individual is buried?

Thank you for helping locate my great grandparents burial location, James and Annie McIntosh, as well as a great Uncle James A McIntosh. Many times as a youth I visited my Great great Aunt and Uncle George and Margaret Conkey on their farm kitty corner to St Paul's but never knew the connection.

Was reading Jai Williams' contributions about the Williams annual picnic.Made me wish I was related to this family! The stained glass windows are gorgeous and I'm sorry I have to wait until next Sept to see them. My GGGrandparents Edwin Tanner and Mary Jane Phillips are buried at St Paul's. Would love to find out if/how John Tanner and Joseph Tanner Sr, who both arrived in WArwick Township in the 1830's, were related. Also any stories/articles/photos about Edwin's family especially Charles Edwin and wife Mary Jane George -- my Great grandparents.

I came across your site in my search for ancestors and, although none of my people are listed, I must tell you how beautiful your pages are. My sister and I have been to country cemeteries in Michigan and Ohio and the watercolor of the church and cemetery on your home page evokes wonderful memories for me. It is the ideal of what a final resting place should be. The stained-glass windows on this page are lovely. Thanks so much for giving my eyes a bit of a respite from staring at too many 'just the facts ma'am' type pages.

What a wonderful job you have done with this website! Many of my relatives, including my mother (Doris Iles) and father (Thomas Williamson)are buried at Wisbeach. My brother Bob told me about this site and I was very interested in reading about the church and people buried there. Whenever I visit Ontario we always take a drive and visit the beautiful cemetery. Thank you so much for all your work and dedication. Jane Williamson

Just a quick note to acknowledge the efforts of individuals involved in constructing this webpage.

I came across it today, while researching my family tree, and was delighted to find an entry about my grandmother's brother, John Kirvell. Until now, I have not been able to locate any information about John and his wife Emily Ruth Paice. Thank you!!!

In one of your older church pamphlets you mentioned a William Cleverdon as one of the early members. I know Lawrence Cleverdon and wife Bedina Cawrse had their first born baby William Cleverdon buried there in 1864. Was there an adult William Cleverdon that you know of? Dennis Hodgson, Stepfather of Lawrence Cleverdon bought a farm in Adelaide Tp. in 1855 or 56.
I have been to a service a few years back, such a lovely church and a well kept cemetery.
Do you know if there is a visual cemetery of St.Paul's on the web?
Thank you for your nice website. Anne Pelkman, Strathroy.

Thomas Cuthbert Williams was my second great-granduncle: his baby sister Maria was my mother's mother's mother's mother! I am grateful to 4th cousin Jai Williams for putting me in touch with the descendants of TCW and enabling me to attend a Reunion in Wisbeach seven years ago.
