There are two separate graveyards. The first of these include very early settlers before the arrival of the Chaffeys. These include John Hawdon lessee of Cowra Station, who it is believed was thrown off his horse and was killed. He is believed to be the first European person buried here in 1848. The second set of graves is known as the Chaffey Graves. The first buried here was W.B.Chaffey’s first wife Harriet ‘Hattie’ (Nee Schell) who died of pleurisy soon after childbirth on October 6, 1889. Her infant child Maurice Murray died a short time later and is buried with her.
