This cemetery is also known as the Morris Pioneers Cemetery. It now has only a few tombstones and a plaque dedicated to the memory of the early pioneers of the area.

Commemorative Plaque

In the centre of the cemetery site is a large boulder with two plaques on it. The first reads:

DEDICATED
TO THE MEMORY OF
THE EARLY PIONEERS
1967

The second reads:

This stone marks the site of
MORRIS GRACE METHODIST CHURCH CEMETERY
which was used from 1884 until 1920.
A plot of land two acres in size
was donated to the church by Thomas Moody.
It is unknown how many people were buried here.
Only these few monuments remain to mark their place.
