The Drummond Cemetery. We have always called it the Malloch cemetery. It is very old. 4 generations of Mallochs interred in that beautiful spot. The new  monument of the Ross’s was set in place once the site of the lost children was found. They had been buried there before the cemetery was sanctioned ground.

In 1816 at the first site two children were buried in the field, their grave marked by a Hawthorne Tree. Their name was believed to be Ross, as a family by that name squatted there very early and also drew Lot 23 Con. 5 close to the road. At the second site there are at least 2 graves and a third site containing the graves of 3 children is on Lot. 23 Con. 5 close to the road. These were not cemeteries in the official meaning of the word, but the graves of family buried close to home. This was not an uncommon occurrence but there is no doubt there are more such grave sites through the township that have been long forgotten.

When we were children we spent time wandering the cemetery and marvelling at the dates and names. To say we had a reputation as a wild bunch may be true but we were taught from an early age to be very respectful and quiet in the cemetery.

Recently I was at the cemetery just visiting with my nephew Ethan who is 7. We wandered from old stone to old stone while he traced with his little fingers the worn names and dates and I read out to him some of the words we could barely see. We picked wildflowers and distributed them. It made me realize once again how important our past is.  Then we walked back to the Farm and spent the rest of the day with family who were very much alive and very noisy. A perfect day.

Hi Linda. This is the barn at our Malloch family farm…The barn was built by Dan Malloch my great grandfather in 1909. This is the first major repair ever done on the barn since my great grandfather had the barn built. Check out the thick stone walls. Blake is repairing the corner of the barn his great great grandfather had built. I love history. –Glenda Mahoney

Sunday- July 8, 2018-We are heading to the farm today to place a time capsule in the barn foundation. I wonder if it will be found in another 109 years. Glenda Mahoney

We each wrote a letter. Money. Crystals. Pictures. A newspaper. We are hoping it will be future Mallochs who open it. My sister Barb said whoever opens it will look at the pictures and say,  “Omg look at their hair look at their clothes!”

historicalnotes
Anybody who is familiar with the ways of the Lanark County farmer knows that they set a high value upon their cattle. In fact, it frequently happens that sometimes the cattle are better cared for than the members of the farmer’s family.
If anything goes wrong with the herd, or if the milk sours or the butter will not come, it is set down as a case of “hexeri” and the services of ‘one that knows” are called in. The latter prescribes a charm to be nailed above the stable door, and, in fact, treats the cattle that have been “hexed” just as he does his human patient. In driving through the country districts it is not an unusual sight to observe these charms above the entrance to the cow stable. –The Appeal- 1900
