This large cemetery has three entry gates, all memorial – see page 1 of recording. The ground plan is rather unusual, in that a wide avenue of evergreens bisects the cemetery, from the front gates to the back, where a large cross is erected on a base planted with shrubs around it. The tombstones face South in most cases rather than East. At the time the cemetery was laid out, the priest of the time, had the existing stones changed to face the entrance and roadway and the custom has remained unchanged. There is a shallow gulley crossing the newer area from east to west and the parishioners refuse to use it for burials although it is kept neatly mowed. The caretaker in 1990 is Mr. Tommy Kelly.

“The first cemetery and church was established in 1855, several miles from the present cemetery and closer to Foymount on the Opeongo Road. In 1891, Father McCormac of Brudenell changed the site and a new church was built. In that year also, the bodies were transferred from the old cemetery in Sebastopol to the new one in Cormac (South Algona Twp.) Father McCormac supervised this transfer.” (from Lift Up Your Hearts, by Rev. Joseph Legree, 1988, page 304)

“As the wagons passed bearing the dead from the old cemetery, Father Cormac made the prophetic statement “There will be a larger procession with the living to this center than for the dead we are interring today”. (From A Journey of Faith, The Shrine of St. Anne, Cormac, Ont. 1938-1988).

The cemetery is on Hwy. #512, west of Eganville about 12 miles. (20 Kms) The church of St. Anne is at the corner where Kitt’s store is located, a short distance from the cemetery itself.
