From the Weekly Herald and Algoma Miner Friday October 12, 1900
A cemetery has been organized in Gillies Township, a company being formed for that purpose.
The ground was chosen on Mr. Hahn's farm and was named "Pine Grove Cemetery.
This morbid exigency was necessitated by the untimely demise of Mr. Navberry (Newberry)
who arrived recently to settle, and whose remains were laid away in the above ground.
Thus the living must make provison for the dead.
The sad necessities, alas, too early arise and call for our dutiful attention."
