Registered to City of Hamilton. From BLW: "Along the property line of Lots 25 and 26 of 2nd Concession, East of Orkney Road on the north side of road there, is a small burial ground, approximately 60 by 100 feet, used by early settlers to the area. These settlers were members of the Camp and Skinner families. Both Robert Camp and Jepthae Skinner were United Empire Loyalists who came to Beverly in the early 1800's. The burial ground dates from 1822, through some have suggested that the earliest interment was Mary Skinner in 1806. No Marker has been found to substantiate this claim. The small plot was in use until 1882 and was then abandoned. Although there were reports of vandalism in 1965, little was done as ownership was unknown. The existence of the burial ground was lost until 1982, when it was rediscovered by Gordon Forth, purchaser of the property on which the burial ground is located. Mr. Forth found the stones in an area overgrown and covered in brambles and weeds. He has cleared the area completely of all undergrowth, cleaned the stones and with the exception of one monument left upright, laid the reminder flat all owing for run off. Status for burials: closed for burials. No plot plan. Size of the cemetery is small 22 monuments. No signage for the cemetery, there is a wood fence with open sections. Monument types are flat and upright, made out of marble." Info from Hamilton Cemetery Booklet.
