According to the Cobourg Sentinel, my ancestor, John DOYLE, was buried at the Wesleyan Methodist Cemetery on March 9, 1874. OCFA does not have him in their files. Another researcher tells me that this particular cemetery was the one at Hull's Corners. I would really like to know if he is buried alone or if his wife is buried with him. I lose track of her soon after their arrival in Canada and know very little about her. She would be Mary DOYLE, b. ca 1800. Does anyone have access to this cemetery's records?
