There is one monument on the top of a knoll. The cemetery is fenced. It has been related to us that there were 13 people buried in this tiny cemetery situated high on the knoll, now unfenced and marked only by the tall dying poplar trees. Two people buried there were removed to Port Elgin Cemetery, one being Hector McArthur, the other a young girl (Lamont). Lot 25, Concession 14 was a Smith farm for many years, and a family burial plot was located here. Very little information is available; although it is believed that about thirteen people are buried in this spot, only two markers are recorded, showing the names of BOIE (Buie) 1874 and Smith. Four children of one family were buried in October, 1875.

In the 1867 Directory of Bruce, Angus Buie lived on Lot 25, Con 14. Another burial here with no stone was the infant child of a Black family who lived in a shack just up the sideroad from this cemetery. The other five are unknown at this time. The Scottish families who lived near the cemetery were all from the Isle of Islay – McArthur, Buie, Smith, etc"
