On 23 Dec 2017 Rootsweb removed access to all websites hosted on their servers. Most of CanadaGenWeb is hosted on Rootsweb and this action made our websites inaccessible both to us and to you our visitors. Unfortunately there isn't much we can do until Rootsweb restores service. In the interim our cemetery indexes can be searched but none of the photos are available. We hope that there is a swift resolution and that we'll be back online as soon as possible. We will update our blog and facebook page as we learn more. Rootsweb's message about this outage can be read on their blog.

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.
