Not all records may relate to Coe Hill, but the ones that do are highlighted, as information is identified

John Gilroy, age  20 and George Gilroy, age 29, were  living in Wollaston Twp by 1881. John disappeared, but George remained in the Coe Hill area all his life. He has descendants in the area to this day.

From a study of four local cemeteries,  the persons born the earliest included:  William Gunter, born 1808 and buried in Salem Pioneer Cemetery. Jonathan Waite born 1809 who is buried in Trinity Anglican Cemetery, then 1826 with birth of Garrett Puffer, who is buried in St Michael’s Cemetery. In 1833  Robert and Amanda Hawthorn were born the same year, and both are buried in St Andrew’s United Cemetery in Coe Hill. Where these individuals were born is not given, nor when they moved to Wollaston Twp, but they were early pioneers to this area.

The 1911 census is provided as an introduction to the families in the area further down this page.

Here is a link to an old Directory of Hastings County with listing of residents for Coe Hill 1941, many of whom I remember.

An older telephone list is also provided. This page ends with a listing of books that have been published about families and history of the Coe Hill area.
