Lemon Springs Private Cemetery



The headstone transcriptions for this cemetery deal with the period from the 29th June, 1864 to 25th August, 1905 and the information on the transcriptions can be found in the GSV library..

Lemon Springs Cemetery is situated on the Edenhope-Kaniva Road on the banks of Lake Charliegragh, approximately 49 kilometres from Kaniva. This is a private cemetery used by the original owners of the property, and the information on this cemetery was taken from the headstones that were still there when Major R. Lyall of the Genealogical Society of Victoria undertook the task of recording the information.

There were seven headstones in this private cemetery at the time the transcriptions were recorded and they mainly record the Broughton family. There are also two Moffat burials in the cemetery, plus a burial for a death at South Brighton, Horsham.

John Brown Broughton married Jessie Moffatt, and their headstones provide details on them:
*Erected to the memory of John Brown Broughtpn by his loving wife, Jessie. Born at Silverton, Devon, died at Lemon Springs, Feb 10-1882. Age 51 years

*In loving memory of our dear mother, Jessie Somerville Broughton, born at Brighton, Fifeshire, died Lemon Springs Aug 25-1905.
