The cemetery is being maintained at the present by some local folks - Good Job!! In the last few years many new smaller white wooden crosses were put up to mark the graves. A new sign was also erected by Mary & Jim Cherwonick and Helen & Alex Ross. Larry Ross made the new sign. It also lists the names of the deceased who are buried there. There are only a few headstones that are still legible. The last burial was that of Anton Mayer in 1973.

The Church on site was built in 1915 by Father Labelle on land donated by Mr and Mrs P. Barry. It was torn down in 1987 because of age and increasing vandalism.
