|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The following was taken from the History of Linn County, 1882, page 647.
"This cemetery was laid out by Stephen S. McCollum on the old McCollum homestead, (southwest quarter of the northeast quarter, section seven, township fifty-eight, range eighteen). The first interment was that of the body of Sarah Jane McCollum, November 17, 1840. It is still used by the family as a burying ground."
This cemetery is sometimes AKA S.A. Lane or other names with Lane in it but it more appropriately should be the Stephen S. McCollum Cemetery based on the person who originally laid it out and the predominate use of the cemetery by members of that family.
