Cemetery notes and/or description:
Also known as Russell Village Cemetery. The cemetery is located on the Pyrites-Russell Road, next to the old Knox-Memorial school.

Among those buried in the cemetery on Russell-Pyrites Road are Revolutionary War veteran John Knox; state Assemblyman Julius M. Palmer; mill owner Hiram Bartlett; members of the Morgan family for whom the Morgan horse is named, and Nathaniel Higgins and his wife, parents of the first girl born in Russell in 1807. Also included are veterans from the War of 1812, Civil War and World Wars I & II. The earliest legible death date is 1813.

The cemetery was neglected for many years, but between 2006 and 2007, was restored using funds raised by an improvement committee started by Jean and Theron Given of Russell.
