edit this listing
David Lewis, who had been a soldier, first visited the Cookstown area in 1825. He returned in 1826 and chose Lot 3 in the 11th Concession and built a house that year making him among the earliest settlers in the area. In March, 1829, he brought his family from Hogg’s Hollow. The east end of this lot was the site of the first Methodist church and the associated cemetery became known as the Lewis burial ground, or Lewis Cemetery.
