Subject: Re: Cooley Cemetery, Ancaster Ontario- part 1
Date: Sun, 31 Oct 2004 16:50:07 -0500


A major search is ongoing in Ancaster Ontario (a part of Hamilton ) For the
remains of the Cooley family and many others in a "Lost" cemetery.

Preserved Cooley U.E. 1750 - 1816 founded the Cemetety on his farm. So far 50+
graves have been discovered including that of his son in law Major Richard Hatt
U.E. who founded Dundas Ontario next door.

There was an article in Friday's Hamilton Spectator about the family and
cemetery.
Of course they got everybody's names wrong :-) LOL!

I can send e-mail copies to anyone who is interested.
