This account of those buried in the MacLeod Family Cemeterey was originally written in 1935 by Lena A. MacAulay from information she obtained from her Aunt Hannah shortly before she died. It was given in May 1979 to Mabel MacDonald Fraser from the records of J. Fraser MacAulay. Additional notes were added by Mrs. Fraser. The account was made available by R. Fraser in 1997.

The cemetery is located on south side of Island Point just west of the gravel bar with barrasois pond behind it. In September of 1999, this small graveyard was cleaned by community volunteers, and the existing inscriptions were transcribed by R. Fraser.
