 Crossroads Brethren in Christ Cemetery, Puslinch, Wellington, Ontario, Canada


Latitude: 43.460177, Longitude: -80.273495
Crossroads Brethren in Christ Cemetery

Formerly known as the Union Cemetery, Puslinch

This cemetery was originally known as the Union Cemetery, Puslinch. A Union Church would have been used by several different church denominations, or perhaps ministers from different denominations would alternate in preaching at a Union Church. Often, the Tunkers (now known as Brethren in Christ) would share a church building with the Mennonites.
This church at this location is now used exclusively by the Brethren in Christ. There is no evidence the cemetery continues to be used. - Allan Dettweiler

The following comes from A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE MENNONITES IN ONTARIO, by L. J. Burkholder.

In the spring of 1890 there came to Conference (the Mennonite Conference) a request to hold meetings at Puslinch in Wellington County every four weeks. The meetings were held at the Union Church House. The Brethren in Christ and others, alternated with Mennonite preachers in holding services. At the end of 1898 these meetings were again discontinued.

Not much can be discerned from the inscription on the gravestone other than the name Nicholas Cober, and that he reached the age of 76 + years. It was the 76 years that makes me believe this is Nicholas Cober - son of Nicholaus Cober and Eva Fisher, husband of Nancy Holm. - Allan Dettweiler
