|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
One of the first things to engage the attention of the early Liberty settlers was the selection of a lot as the site for a meeting-house and graveyard. Their attention was first directed to a lot in the woods near the southeast corner of Liberty, offered by James Applegate, and now owned by his son Calvin. This was an elevated and beautiful site, and so confidently was it expected that it would be accepted that the remains of some persons were buried there, and the graves are yet to be seen. But at a meeting of the congregation at the house of Alexander McCleery, it was resolved to accept a lot offered by him, which is now occupied by the church and graveyard. The deed for this lot was not made until March 15, 1828, twentv-five years after the purchase was made, and was given by Alexander McCleery to Matthew Mitchell, James Boys, and William Geddes, trustees of the Presbyterian congregation of Liberty, belonging to the Associate Synod of North America.
