The following was taken form an article written by Louisa Hatch. In turn, it was taken from the Tweedsmuir History of Corinth and North Bayham.
“If one would discover the fairest locations of our countryside, he could do no better than follow the trail of the pioneer cemeteries. Invariably our beauty starved ancestors selected the sunniest and sweetest spots in which to lay their lost ones for the long sleep, until the glad trump of the resurrection should rouse them.

One of these pleasant burial sites is Dobbie cemetery of North Bayham. Rising high and dry above a semi-border of open woodland, it is delightfully estial and sunny on a bright March day. It is small, but full of handsome monuments, introducing to the old families of the district, Livingston’s, Crossett’s, Haley’s, Elliott’s, etc.

Conspicuous among the stones is the monument of George William Best and the spires of the twin obelisks of Andrew and George Dobbie, ancestors of one of the most influential families of North Bayham. In fact, it was from the estate of Colonel Andrew Dobbie that the plot for the cemetery was given, and there are so many odd things that one runs across in connection with cemeteries, this burial plot was, and still is Anglican, although the surrounding community during the memory of modern man has always been Methodist.
The place must have been considered a centre of population at one time. For not only did the North Bayham Methodists erect their first church on a knoll across the field, but before that, the Anglicans planned to build a church there. It was for this purpose that Colonel Andrew Dobbie’s grant included five acres, the west part reverting to the estate when the edifice did not materialize.
Most of the woodland that surrounded the Dobbie cemetery has now disappeared since Miss Hatch wrote the above article, but it is still a pleasant spot. It is more neatly kept than many country cemeteries due to the fact that a perpetual care fund was established some years ago, started by the late George Elliott, whose earthly remains now rest in this same cemetery. The fund now amounts to $3,000 and is administered by a Cemetery Board, of which James Elliott is secretary-treasurer.
