Altoona Mirror 27 May 1955

The cemetery, dating back to the
early days of the settlement known
as Collinsville, served the community
as a burial plot as late as 1940.
Such names as Hughes, Kitts,
Taylor, Potter, Filer, Robertson
Peck, McNoldy, High, Stacey, Nickola
and many others are on the
headstones. Then, too, there are
wooden markers on which the paint
and lettering have been obliterated
by the elements.

According to the registrar of veterans'
graves, there are 11 Civil
war veterans buried there, including
William Blakely, George W. Eastright,
John Hooper, William High, William Mock,
Reuben Peck, Joseph H. Robertson,
George Settlemeyer, David Taylor, John Walton
and William Peck.
