By the late 1840s a group of Irish immigrants had established a loose settlement, locally known as “Paddy’s Settlement,” north of Clinton. Some of the earliest dated tombstones are those of Jane McGowan and James Taheny, buried in 1862, Mary Morrison in 1864, Ellen Murphy in 1866, Patrick Taheny in 1869, Martha Morrison in 1873, Mrs. John McDonald in 1876, Dominic McGettrick in 1879, James Quigley in 1884, Abraham Badour in 1885, and John Carey and Merrin Quigley in 1886. The last burials were of Mary Swinbank in 1967, William O’Brien in 1968, and Leonard Earl Blake in 1971. A number of the original settlers’ tombstones can still be found in the cemetery today.
