A tree planting at St. John's Anglican Church.
Grand River Branch received a grant from the UELAC to identify
Loyalist burial sites in cemeteries within its area with a sign Loyalist
Burial Site. St. John's Anglican Woodhouse Cemetery on the
outskirts of Simcoe, Ontario, was the first of three chosen by the
Branch. On Loyalist Day, 19 June 2005, following a strawberry social,
Doris Wilson, Honorary Vice President of the Grand River Branch, planted
a Sweet Gum tree, requested by the church board, to replace the aged
Carolinian trees in the cemetery. The tree can be traced back to these
earliest Sweet Gums, whose seeds were brought to Port Dover in 1795.
