Ninety Six Cemetery (Spangler - Sugar Creek) Sec 32 T19 R25 - This cemetery had its beginning with the death of Sophia Spangler, daughter of the landowner Henry Spangler, September 22, 1859. An old Secretary book bears the name of Spangler Cemetery Association, and is dated 1859. On April 2, 1874 Mr. Spangler sold this parcel of land to J. Goodrick, James Kanady, __Archer, T. Dedo and John Chamberlain, trustees of Sugar Creek Cemetery, for the sum of $5. The Spangler Cemetery was reorganized March 1, 1881. At a special meeting held Aug. 10, 1900 the name was changed to Ninety Six Cemetery (the same as the school district). Families living in this area, so close to the Missouri Border, figured greatly in the early history of Linn County.

Henry Spangler, one of our oldest citizens, who was so lately laid away at 96 cemetery, was known by your correspondent for about thirty years; heard him play the fife in Ohio when John Freemont run for President. He was always a straight Democrat, a good kind neighbor and citizen, always a church member, and carried the marks of a Christian. I hope to meet him in the better land, where he will play, not the tune of Dixie, but that of the redeemed of the Lord. - Published in the La Cygne Journal, 18 Dec 1886
