New Atlantic Voice documentary, Written in Stone, explores the story

A new memorial stone sits at the top of a small cemetery along the St. John River in New Brunswick. The grey stone is about seven feet tall and has dozens of names etched into it. Names that, until now, had long been forgotten. 

 N.B. Power paid for the stone and placed it there in the fall of 2021. It replaces an older memorial that still stands at the graveyard, but that stone didn’t tell the story of what happened here.
