Paraphrase taken from Fran Dumas' cemetery listing
"This is the heart of the "Canada Settlement" where families that were forced out of Canada because they refused to swear an oath to the King of England" in the War of 1812, came to live. The plot was at the edge of the gully and may have been partially destroyed by erosion as well as the grazing of livestock in later years. Buckley Johnson came to Starkey in 1814 and married twice. His 1st wife died here, but his 2nd wife, Julia Youngs went west with her daughters. Lyman, son of Buckley, and Lyman's son Buckley Jr. live on the homestead. The rest of the Johnson family moved out of Yates County. The Sawyers & Newcombs who came from Canada along with the Johnsons are mostly buried in the Rock Stream cemetery, as is Lyman Johnson. This list is of family members who could not be located elsewhere."
