Caught up with some of the relatives :) What a great amount of history all in the once place. First generations of settlers to the area and subsequent generations.

We went to this cemetery to visit a friends grave, and were surprised at how neat and tidy the cemetery is. There is a small toilet block there. The cemetery has had over 6000 buried here since the mid 1800's

Quaint old cemetery, lovely setting. No toilets and minimal shelter. Could use a better information board to help people looking for family history.
