The first known survey of this cemetery was done by noted genealogist Dr. Allan E. Marble on June 29, 1969. He seldom named a cemetery but, instead, assigned it an identifying number. For this cemetery, the number was 90. He recorded the location as Graywood. He did, however, make a notation that this was the location of St. John the Baptist Anglican Church.

At a later date, Genweb volunteers transcribed Dr. Marble's survey notes and made them available online at Rootsweb. At that time, the volunteers named it “St. John the Baptist Anglican Cemetery” but, in the Rootsweb cemetery index, they listed the name as “St. John the Baptist Anglican Church”. They recorded the location as Graywood.

Dr. Marble transcribed 35 headstones containing 54 inscriptions. The oldest identifiable stone is from 1879. The cemetery continued to be active for about 20 years after Dr. Marble’s survey with the last known burials taking place in 1989. Sixteen years later, the church was demolished. A monument with an engraved dedication now marks the site of the former Anglican church (see the photo gallery for a photo of the monument).

DIRECTIONS: This cemetery is located on the east side of Highway 8, directly south of Civic #7492 (which is a house with a red roof).
