The earliest burial listed on Find A Grave is for Levi Gibbs, 8 Dec 1886.

Notes from former MCGS Member Margo Lurvey: Row lists have been located. The following tombstones are listed but not on Find a Grave. However the 1980's cemetery walk-through completed by the MCGS [Starting on East side going from South to North] lists: Row 7, two flat markers in ground that are illegible; Row 10, 5 markers without names or dates, one marble; Row 15, one 6X8 head marker with no name or dates; Interestingly Row 18 does not seem to exist.

  • Armour, George; 1837-1945, Row 6
  • Carmichall, (sic) John G; 188- [There is a John Carmichael born 1844 - died 1896 buried in this cemetery. Is this the same individual?]
  • Casper, McIntoch (sic); 1894-1900, [MCPLD database lists Casper McIntosh, son of John & Lizzie McIntosh. Find-a-Grave lists John and Lizzie and "infants". Casper may be buried with his parents. He appears in the 1900 U.S Federal census aged 5 but not in 1910.]
  • Dawson, Orval (sic); 1877 - 1964 [MCGS from 1980's lists Row 6, grave name plate].
  • Murry (Murray?), Emma; 1900 - 1900
  • Worth, Charles & Florence Cathern (sic) Worth: 18 October 1932, Row 3, Double flat stone in ground. [I searched the online newspapers for any notice of these deaths but was unable to locate any mention. It appears that the couple died on the same day.]

A plot map of this cemetery would be helpful. The location and photographs of the tombstones for the above burials could be added to Find a Grave as part of the cemetery project.

Marie Tipping located the Eagalite Cemetery Certificate of Incorporation dated 28 September 1896 and renewal dated 16 April 1919, copies of which are included here [**note** some pages are difficult to read].
