Plaque on site: "This, the oldest known cemetery in Marlborough Township, served the community of Irish Catholics around Dywer Hill and Richmond until circa 1867. Due to the nature of the graves, it is unique in the township and rare in Ontario. Shallow excavations covered with stones in a low cairn were marked by planks inscribed with paint. The spartan character of the cemetery reflects the hardships of life for early settlers."
