Faith Union Cemetery

Faith Union Cemetery is located south of Etzikom, Alberta.
In the early part of the twentieth century this area was
known as Gahern.

According to cemetery records available there
were 25 interments here between 1913 and 1926 with
no further burials taking place for over 80 years.  In 2008
William Eldon Peters, a co-founder of The Canadian
National Historic Windmill Centre, was laid to rest here.

Even though a rain storm was blowing in from the south,
it was still a peaceful spot...this cemetery has a
good feel to it.
