What is interesting is that the first full time Anglican priest at St. John's York Mills was a man also by the name of William Marsh. He arrived with his wife Susannah (Brown) Marsh and children from Wiltshire England in 1828. And he is buried there in the cemetery. While headstone hunting in the churchyard one day it was both weird and surprising to see his stone. Unfortunately no early markers for Loyalist William Marsh or other settlers who were buried there at an early date were found.
