A glimpse of our past …
Andrew and Helene Foy, a well-loved and generous couple, donated the stone and wrought iron gate at the entrance to the Sacred Heart Cemetery.
The cemetery is located just as you are entering the Village of Lanark from Perth, off Highway 511. The turn is well marked as the turn to the “Timber Run Golf Club”. As you make the turn, you will see the gates to the cemetery on your right. (Latitude: 45.08341 Longitude: -76.33269)
Some of the interments in this graveyard have been documented by Find A Grave.
A quick search on the internet will return numerous references to this graveyard and to people doing research on the early community that lived in the Lanark area. Archives Lanark also maintains a cemetery transcript in addition to census records. Transcriptions are also available through the Ontario Genealogical Society Cemetery Transcriptions: Lanark County
Many find the services of the Lanark County Genealogy Service helpful in their research.
