NF indicates a marker placed after the Ontario Genealogical Society transcriptions completed in the early 1980's.

It is barely believable, but apparently the monuments in this cemetery were desecrated when the Local Council Officials told employees to throw them into the river simply to get rid of them to assist in cutting the grass! Today little is know of how many stones were lost, etc. The following few were found to have survived the desecration! You will notice that some stones have disappeared since the transcription work done by Kent branch of OGS 30 years ago. We do not know if this apparent desecration of the cemetery by local government occurred before that time or after. i.e. if the stones that you see on the list were most if not all of those in the cemetery, or, if there were a lot more that are no longer known at all.
