Cemetery notes and/or description:
The name for this cemetery is the anglicized version of the German last name Aughterbine. William Aughterbine of Germany was the founder of the Society of United Brethren, and in the early 1830s this was a very popular Protestant movement. As soon as 1835, settlers in Chesterfield organized a United Brethren Church and named it after the movement's founder: Otterbein (Aughterbine). Brazelton and Stephen Noland, William Dilts, John Suman, Henry Russell, and J.C. Guston and their families were some of the pioneer settlers who attended. They first met in each others' homes because they could not afford to build a house of worship.
