Description
A small pioneer cemetery with the remains of some of the earliest pioneers. There are only four visible gravestones, and only two of these are somewhat readable. One gravestone tells the sad tale of the struggles of raising children in those times, a grave marker with the names and dates of three lost children of the McNabb family.

A stone near the entrance to the cemetery had a faint engraving scrawled onto it, very difficult to make out but I think it reads "20 graves not marked". I cannot find any history of this cemetery. The larger and more well known Sadowa United Church Cemetery (a short distance to the east) is well documented, but his one seems to have slipped through the cracks of history.

The names of the soles buried here in this tiny cemetery may be lost forever, but since the grass is still cut occasionally, their struggles are not forgotten.
