There was nothing to originally mark this cemetery. My Dad, Kenwell Ferguson, knew its location because his father had shown him. When we cleared away years of debris, we discovered quite a few fieldstone markers indicating graves. For the reunion, the rock was moved there from Dad’s farm, the brass plaques were installed and the cemetery was fenced. This was all Jean Allen’s vision – the culmination of her years of research and her tribute to her roots.
