Registered to Township of Adelaide Metcalfe. From Byron McLeod: The stone of Peter Moore age 11, 1835 - 1846 this boy was bit by a rattlesnake, walking home from the one room school . hence the poem at the bottom of same stone (now getting hard to read) talks of 'this snake so wild' From Peter Brown: First interment was David Brown in April 1836 who passed away two years after being one of the first settlers in the area. He was carried back from his residence on Lot 8, Con 12, and buried there hence it became the Brown Cemetery. The Brown Methodist church was later close by at Lot 8, Con 13, later to become an Orange Hall and finally to be moved to Cairngorm and where it became an amusement hall. First interment 1836.
