About the beginnings of Richmond, and St. John's Anglican church and cemetery:
    "It is not possible to trace the beginning of st. John's Anglican Church and Parish to an exact date, but one authentic piece of evidence in the form of the Corner Stone of the first Church together with contemporary references in S. P. G. Reports (Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts) lead one to the following conclusion. The first church built in Richmond was the Episcopal, and its corner stone (A.D. 1823) was laid by the Local Lodge of Free Masons* probably on St. John the Baptist Day, June 24, 1823. It is claimed that this was the first church built in Carleton County"
