Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Petrolia Pioneer Cemetery sits on a secluded hill on the south side of town. It is well worth a visit. This cemetery was long the only official burial ground in the Petrolia Cemetery District, which was formed in 1955 and covers 172 square miles. The first burial there was of infant Alonzo Conklin, in November of 1857. The last known available plot was used in 1978 (there is a memorial dating as late as 2003 however). A new cemetery west of town, named the Petrolia Table Cemetery, is being developed for area residents as quickly as funding will allow.
see: http://www.mattolehistory.org/Tour_Petrolia.htm from which this description is based.
