Speaking with Mr. John Mock of Medicine Hat, Alberta, September 24, 1996, it was confirmed that this location was used as a cemetery only. The settlers from this area attended church services in other communities or held church in the Many Island School on occasion. One of the pastors was Reverend Spady.

This Congregational cemetery is located northeast of Medicine Hat, Alberta, fourteen miles east of Highway #41 on Township Road 132 or Longvalley Road and Range Road 21. As at September 02, 1996, this three acre plot is well fenced, the short native grasses were uncut.

A double row of ancient metal pins about sixteen feet apart indicates a roadway leading to the two rows of graves. We counted eight graves in the east row and twenty four in the west row. There may be other graves in this vast area. Of the thirty two visible graves only seven had markers that are still readable. Some of the graves are identified with rotting wooden markers.
