Eli died in 1849 and was the first tonbstone burial on the land. Althought the story goes that while traveling through in 1845 or 46, a father asked Eli if he could bury their little girl on his land. This would have been the first burial, an unmarked grave in the southwest corner of the cemetery.
The cemetery is fenced with many lovely oak and hickory trees. Deed number 128 was recorded on September 1, 1889, by William Cash and Lydia Cash to the trustees of Burrel Township, one square acre for cemetery purposes.
