The Pettapiece Cemetery was established in 1882 on land owned by William Shanks. It is located in the S.E. corner of            24-13-21 WPM (approx. 8 km N and 1.6 km E of Rivers, Manitoba). Civic address – 75006 Rd 120W.

The Ephriam Graham family arrived from Ontario in mid-March l982. With them came their invalid thirteen year old daughter Laura. Her death in June of that year was the first in the community. Mr. Graham with his neighbor, William Shanks, walked over their adjacent land seeking a suitable location for the burying ground. Being wet that spring, high ground on the south-east corner of Mr. Shanks’ homestead (24-13-21) was chosen. The grave was marked with a picket fence.
