Folklore tells us that this cemetery at Petries Point was once the burial grounds for those people who Prosper Companion buried. There may be in upwards of fifty graves at this spot. The land is now owned by Imperial Oil and is no longer used as a cemetery. The only headstone still standing is that of Joseph Brake and his wife Mary Brake:

    Erected in memory of Joseph Brake
    who died Aug. 1, 1850 age 39 years.
    Also his wife Mary
    died 25 July 1850 age 32 years.

It should be noted that this information provided by local residents that has been passed down from generation to generation.
