Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery sets on high ground with several old cedar trees. It is located on the west side of Ridge

Road, about 1/2 mile south of 120th Street North.

London Twp. Location from Riverdale: 3 N, 2 W, N.

Porter Cemetery, also sometimes referred to as Pleasant Hill Cemetery, is about a 1 acre tract. A death record for 1896 in The Monitor-Press called it the Prairie Hill Cemetery.

Martha Porter, as small child, died in 1875. Her parents buried her in this small area. Soon, the child of another family in the community died. She was buried near the Porter child. This is possibly a Clester child. A marker reads: Arthur Clester, Feb 6, 1875, age 11 mo. and 27 days. It was then Mr. Porter designated this area to be used as a cemetery.
