Section B, Lot 416
Pine Hills Cemetery

William “Bill” Alexander Latham was born on February 29, 1852 in Scarborough. A farmer, Bill married Jane Miller on October 17, 1894, and together they had four children. They were among the early settlers of Scarborough Junction. Several early Latham family members were first buried in Chalmers Cemetery at St. Clair and Pharmacy, but by 1928 the cemetery had been abandoned, and the family decide to use Pine Hills Cemetery for future burials. Later, a number of the Chalmers burials were moved to Pine Hills in 1952. Bill Latham, who died in April 1928, was not buried until July 5th, when he became the first burial in Pine Hills Cemetery.
