Located across the road from Mount Albion Cemetery lies the small Van Duzen Family plot. Levinus Van Duzen emigrated from Ney York state in 1800 and settled south of Red Hill on Lot 22, Concession 8. This may be the family burial ground, but this is difficult to confirm with few remaining stones. In 2000, a single marker was identified as the only complete stone remaining at the site. It commemorated Robert Van Duzen who died in 1873. A small pile of stones within a fenced area appears to be all the remains of the grave markers that once were there.
