|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The land was purchased from the Henry family in 1859. The first burial was Julius Everts who died at the age of fifteen years in June 1858 of typhoid fever. Euphemia Rutherford, who died at age 76 in 1856, was the first person moved to the cemetery from her burial site on the family farm. The cemetery covers two and a half acres. The original burial records were drawn in pencil on a two foot square piece of board. Aaron Hinkley was the first cemetery associate president. In its beginning, lots sold for $2.50 each and held eight plots. The cost in 2005 for a lot containing six plots was $1,500. The cemetery averages about three burials per year. Remodeling of the adjoining Presbyterian Church - built in 1865 - is being planned so that weddings, funerals, and memorial services may be held there. The cemetery has 715+ graves. This is still an active cemetery.
