Description:
A colour photograph of the headstone for the grave of Oliver Badgerow, which is in the Greenwood Conservation Area.
Oliver Badgerow was a member of the infamous "Markham Gang". Upon his release from prison he settled in Pickering Township.
The northern half of his 100-acre farm on the 4th concession is now the suthern section of the Greenwood Conservation area. On the edge of the main parking lot in that Conservation Area is a single isolated grave. An iron railing makes a symbolic effort to protect the flat carved gravestone. It has suffered from the ravages of time but the name is clearly readable - "Oliver Bagero, who died December 18, 1861" (Excerpt from the book "Mayhem to Murder" by Paul Arculus).
