Old Stones relies on members, volunteers and donors to keep doing the work of the Society.
There are several ways people can help Old Stones:
One way is by coming and visiting the cemeteries and letting people know what we do. Our many volunteers mow the cemeteries and work hard to keep the cemeteries clean and also help to restore and preserve the markers and the cemeteries themselves. Other members and volunteers help us perpetuate the memories of those who were buried here by helping to find out as much as we can about the residents and their families.
Contact us if you wish to volunteer and help with any of these efforts.
Old Stones also welcomes new members. An Old Stones membership is only $5 and the easiest way by far to join is to click on the Join Us button below. You will be taken to a Square account, which is overseen by Bill Curry one of our members, where you may send your membership fee immediately, and Bill will send you back a confirmation. Memberships run from January 1 to December 31 of each year. We are also always looking for folks to join our Board – the Board meets 5 times a year and coordinates the Restoration, Preservation and Perpetuation of the three cemeteries. Board members are the key to our efforts, and we always welcome people who would like to be more deeply involved.
Finally, Old Stones always welcomes donations to our efforts. You may donate by mailing a cheque to the address below, or again we have a Square account button that will allow you to donate securely. You will receive an instant notification from Bill, and any donation over $10 will also allow the donor to obtain a tax receipt from Old Stones, as we are a registered not for profit society.
We have three levels of donations – all of which will be formally recognized by the Society, and the donor will receive a tax receipt.
Donor – a gift of $50 or more will certify a donor.
Supporter – a gift of $100 or more will certify a Supporter.
Patron – a gift of $250 or more will certify a Patron.
To Donate to Old Stones, simply click the donation button below. If you wish to send a donation for an amount other than that on one of our buttons, please e-mail us and we will look after it for you, with gratitude.

Hi, I just came across your web site of the cemeteries in Beaver River and am searching to see if I can find the burial site of Mandy Hall, or Amanda Hall, she would have been my Grandfather, Franklyn Eugene Hall’s sister, and was buried in the first cemetary, I believe, coming from Beaver River corner towards Yarmouth, many, many years ago. I was wondering if you had come across any records by that name.
