Some of the early stones were formed into the memorial cairn. The earlies date on these is of ...Gett, wife of Samuel Boyle, who died November 30, 1856.

The iron crosses found in the old section of St. Peter's RC Cemetery, were used as headstones, with the name of the deceaded inscribed on a metal nameplate. These iron crosses were fashioned by Joseph Ducharme, who learned the blacksmith trade in Zurich ON and Blake,ON. Joseph Ducharme set up his own forge at Drysdale and in 1886 he married Marie Geoffrey. Joseph and Marie had 15 children. Joseph made all his own tools with the exception of his anvil and blower.
