  • Notes 
    • Susanna Thomson and her Husband Charles Sanderson are buried in the Cemetery at the old Wexford Wesleyan Methodist Church (Lawrence Avenue, and Victoria Park).

      While the interred remains are still there, the monuments are not. I believe a few were moved to Wexford Heights Cemetery, some were vandalized or stolen what remained, I believe, were buried beneath a stone cairn which was erected on the site in 1989. The Cemetery has been surveyed and registered on title as a Cemetery to prevent any construction on the site. I believe title lies with the United Church under the supervision of the Wexford Heights Church.

      The visible stones were transcribed in 1977 and again in 1986. Charles, died 16 July, 1884, 65 years. Sanderson, Susanna, died 20 March 1898, 69 years, Wife of Charles Sanderson, Seneca Charles, died 18 September 1865, 6 years, 7 days, son of Charles and Susannah Sanderson. Sanderson, William, son of -. Ann -erson

      The Cemetery was also known locally as the Fitzpatrick Appointment as William Fitzpatrick granted the land for a Church and Cemetery shortly after he acquired the property in 1832. While the Cemetery lies on the west side of Victoria Park in the North York community, the Church was moved and later replaced by a brick edifice on the Scarborough side of the Town Line. The last know burial there was in 1912 but that was several years after Susanna was buried there in 1898. Nobody was interred between those dates and nobody else after four children of the Maginn family were interred in 1891 after they died of diphtheria. Some say people were afraid to set foot in the old Cemetery after that.
