Doan's Hollow Cemetery is located at 407 Norfolk 3, Simcoe, ON N3Y 4K2 (42.804285, -80.253449). From the town of Simcoe Ontario, travel South until you see St. John's Road. Turn left and look for the cemetery on the North side of the road (approximately 3 km).

It is an older burial ground that is no longer active. It is designated as a United Empire Loyalist cemetery, and contains some of the earliest grave markers in the Simcoe Ontario area. In order to better preserve the tombstones, they have been moved and set in cement. Several are no longer legible, or are partially obscured by the cement base, but the local historical society has placed a large memorial stone with the listing of all known names buried in this cemetery (see photos).
