The first officially recorded burial is of Murdock McDonald in 1869, although according to a Mrs. Canvin, the first person laid to rest in our cemetery was John Clouston's first wife, whom he had returned to Scotland to fetch in 1855. Our earliest minutes are of the Annual Meeting of the congregation, dated October 12, 1863. At that time, agreement was recorded "to appointing three Trustees, to hold in trust the lot of land so liberally bestowed on the congregation by his Excellency, Governor Dallas, on the part of the honourable Hudson's Bay Company". Appointed were John Clouston, Donald Gunn and John Gunn. The following year they reported that the deed had been procured, and the land lay waiting to be put to use.
