Research shows that this cemetery is abandoned according to By-law 971-93. It is located behind a barn at the end of a narrow path.The Rickert plot was guarded by an iron fence, gate and huge dog at one time but is now missing. This really upsets me that this was taken and a good example of why we have FULL members and FRIENDS ONLY settings, for locations with valuable items. It is clear someone is mowing this land, living close-by, probably and thanks. During editing I have noticed 1868 was a particular bad year for deaths, or should I say the winter of 1867 was bad. Having the age on the headstone written out and a few other designs are something I have not seen often. This area looks a small playing field with the headstones as spectators along the edge.
