The Georgina Historical Society, as a not-for-profit organization, collects, preserves, promotes and interprets the rich history and heritage of all communities now known as the Town of Georgina.

It has come to our attention that there is a proposal to have the Johnson Family members buried there disinterred and reburied in Cooke’s Cemetery.  We cannot support this idea.  The consensus of the Board Members is that this proposal is contrary to our mandate. The Johnson Cemetery contains the remains of a founding family of Georgina, and as a designated heritage site it is one of five Pioneer Cemeteries within the Town of Georgina.
