Looking at Canadian cemetery records which are held by RootsWeb, I was able to find both Richard and Jane Williams listed as buried in the Grove Cemetery located at 343606 Ebenezer Road in the Township of South West Oxford formerly know as Dereham Township. I could not find a photo of the tombstone.

Rest in peace,
